Three years

Three years have passed me in a haze
And I forgot how to observe
And I forgot my time and place
And I forgot my own true words

I have dismissed the sparks of joy
When I discovered something new
When life was nothing but a toy
When, daringly, I still loved you

When spring had blossomed in my heart—
Never to give me what I lack
Never to end, only to start
Never to ever change me back

Never to wither, so I thought
But then three years lastly passed
Three years—in one mighty blast
Three years, turning all to naught

Three years on a one-way train
Three years of both love and pain
Three years, all gone down the drain.

The Spring

Oh yes
The Spring has come
The quiet beating of the drum
Is ever closer to behold
As beauties of new life unfold
And, from under piles of snow,
Emerge victorious of the winter blow

And, in me,
A new myself lies dormant, too
My body yearns for something new,
A new direction, paved by none
But morning rays of growing Sun,
Whose shine, so cleansing and so fine
Reflects in corner of my weary eye

Drumpfed

I didn’t vote for this, I didn’t vote!
So why did this still happen?!
It felt like a bad anecdote
‘Till I heard my nerve snapping

If we would ever meet in life
He’d surely resent me
And still this bigot on two legs
Should somehow represent me

A millionaire for common folk
Locked up in his own tower—
All praise the Emperor’s new clothes
Our new King’s might and power!

And all the baboons in his court
Are standing there clapping
I didn’t vote for this, I didn’t vote–
So how did this still happen?!

Mah beer

When I face a bunch of problems
When the future’s not so clear
There’s a simple, great solution:
I just grab a beer!

When my life becomes a burden
When I feel like death is near
Got an easy resolution:
I just grab a beer!

Facing difficult decisions
I salute them with a sneer:
I don’t draw any conclusions,
I just grab a beer!

To hell with my responsablities!
To hell with peopel i hold dear!
To hell with politics and revalutions,
Jus’ lemme drink mah beer…

Vivid.
So vivid.
Emotions splatter.
Taking me on a roller-coaster of feelings.
Watching myself from afar
I cannot help but applaud
The Creator.

My fear amazes me.
It makes me think.
It makes me believe.
It shows me that I care for things—
Things that aren’t even there
Which makes the experience
Even more frightful.

My passion meets its end.
Suddenly, abruptly
Everything has gone astray
There is no sense in
Life after death.

My love was not enough.
Through a series of unfortunate events
Though largely due to my own incapability
I have suffered loss.
To revisit such a dream
To try again and to correct my mistakes
Feels like cheating.

My failures cannot be overwritten.

But do I condemn
The Creator?
No.
Rather, I applaud the brilliant play
In which I got to partake.
For tragedy is most entertaining.

Take a deep breath

Humans are sometimes forgetful
Of their most basic needs
Yet the key to our success
Is sorting them out first

Take a deep breath

Be all things as they are
You are alive at this very moment
And the future is always uncertain
No matter how it might seem

Take a deep breath

There’s always time to pause
And to recollect your thoughts
To put the past behind you
And to ask yourself the question

Take a deep breath

Poker: A beginner’s guide

I’m pretty good at poker
The problem though:
I’m never playing by the book
And once ahead
I try to outsmart the game

But that’s not how the game works.

You have to play by the rules.
You’ve got to remember the rules.
Getting excited is bad.
The ones who’re excited are fools.
You’ve got to stick to the rules.

Limit your creativity.
Only odds, no oddities.
Poker is a game of chance.
Poker is a game of no chance.

But that’s not how life works.
So get excited for life.
Not for poker.
