The Lost Kingdom

Once upon a time I had my own kingdom

I ruled everything, build houses, bridges

and railways

The king made alliances and held festivities

Most often the other animals and people in

The kingdom were happy

Then one day my mother told me that we have

To move and the kingdom was lost forever

Replaced by plastic solider fighting world war two

And maps dealing with invasions, occupation and

Blood

The world changed and I went away to other wars

In the real world or was it real?

War in the mind

Sometimes life is just miserable

I am a prisoner of my own comfort

There is no excuse

Soon I will be gone

And it will be ok

Life is not worth that much

Just a spark in the pan

Then we are all gone forever

 

Knowledge

Confused and very tired

Trying to fight the sleep

Looking out the window

And the day is bleak

Trying to pull myself together

Trying to do the things I don´t like

Feeling like i am being fooled

But by whom?

By them, you, me or life itself?

I do not know

The only thing that I do know

This very gray day

Is that I can learn

But only what I can accommodate

In my very tired mind

The battlefield

The mountains are empty
Almost 100 years after
Only the ruins and
Memories remains
Here more than
2000 meter so many
young boys died
The rain and wind
has taken it´s share
As well as the snow
and the thunder
Still you can feel
The presence of those
Who never made it home
They are still there
Waiting for the other
Side to attack
But the silence
Will only be the
Answer to their
Prayer
The other side
Is dead as well
They cannot see
Each other only
Wait in the arid
Landscape
To evaporate
With the memory

The young old man

Fear is not a way to live
Peace without freedom
Is not peace but pacification
The man told me
But his land is lost
Stolen by his neighbour
And here he is
Far away smoking
His cheap cigaretts
In the camp his
former friends
guarded him
While other friends
is being tortured
Or killed
Here in the far north
He is dying a little
Bit day by day

Long, long time ago

Long time ago
I went to a war
Long, long time ago
To the valley of death
I went
Long, long time ago
The people where full of fear
I was just one lonely traveller
What could I do?
Long, long time ago
Every day there were people dead
In the street, at home at school
And every step could be your last, so fast
I put my life at stake to see the war
Long, long time ago
Then I went home to my house,
Took a deep, deep breath and enjoyed
The peace in my big, big bed
But the war would not let me go
Every night I could not forget
The trapped, the wounded and the dead
But at home nobody wanted  to hear about
That  terrible war
Long, long time ago
They said  to me, let them kill each other until they’re all dead
Let them die in their bloody war.
We have our own cats and dogs and friends
we do not care about that war
And so life went on and on and on
Until that bloody war came here
Long, long time ago
With it´s terror and fear
It took some of our dear
But the people still did not care
Because it´s not our war
It´s  not our problem anymore
If people die on the other side
Because we only care for our family and friends
Let the other die they said,
Long, long time ago
Then somebody dropped a bomb
And now they’re all dead
With their cats and dogs and other pets
Even their families and friends are all dead
So I guess it´s not their problem any more
Since, long long time ago
