The Old Mans Song

The finest hour was always

To our surprise

A crowded one

We shared our lives

With the crowd

Around us

The food, the clothes and the dirty

Mattresses in the dining hall

Still this is fond memories

We had a common cause

Now I am old and wealthy

My five bedroom house is empty

And the pool is never used

We are like strangers or

Even worse enemies to

Each other

Avoiding to meet even

Over dinner

Chimera

The sun is gone

Just fog and

Grey matter

I came here a long time ago

Thought I would leave

Still I am here

Where I should not be

Waiting for a miracle

That has faded away

Long time ago

Just the

Mummified remains

Are still here

Like a rotten fruit

Cascading transcendence

When I was young

I wanted to be strong and without fear

Fly all over the world with my wings

Instead I lost it all

Failed again and again

In my shame and grief

I hide in my cell

But the wound was painful, it went deep into the heart

I could not from the world stay apart

I had to repeat again and agin

What I could not do, I had to do

Again and again

And my life went into a loop

New people, new failures

To prove once and for all how bad I really am

But that was not end

I realized that I had to transcend

To see life from a different point of view

And play with a friend

And that was finally the end

Separation

So now we finally hate each other
me and she
I had enough long time ago
keeping quiet
keeping patient
I hate her
she hates me
so I guess we are even

Failure

Poem to life, travel 

We waited,
and waited in vain
no one came
It were just us
With our intention
to do good work
That no one wanted
to have
We give and give
but what does it matter
We are all lost anyway 
The snow is still here
and the winter 
Soon the war
will start
And no one will
remember 
these lines
