Eternal Quest

The journey through eternity

Leaving, traveling and coming

Back and fourth

Silence that whispers

The names of those before you

And the names of those

That will pass the same way

While life passes by

A Journey To The Past

Once when I

Was young

That time when we all

Awaited a nuclear war

At anytime of the day

Then the world was in good order

That time long ago

When east was east and west was west

And everybody was happy with that

More or less, more or less

(Nobody asked those people in the east)

The Great Wall protected us from

The terrible east even though

We did not understand it at the time

I travelled through Europe on old trains

Reaching the other side after a week

A very white stone in the Aegean Sea

In the water a fake carpet

Still gives me comfort

The nuclear holocaust has been

Temporary cancelled until

Further notice

Leaving

Closing the shop

Leaving my home

Traveling along well known

Roads towards the unknown

Will walk until

The sea stops me

The Boat

Life is like about

A small steamship

Traveling through

Troubled water

In an

Until we sink to the bottom

Starting the eternal journey

We are always one or more

Not only one

However lonely we feel

The Start

There are no quick fixes

Farewell all illusions

The journey will be arduous

No perks

Nothing that I once expected

Just moving a night

This Morning

A long journey always starts

With a few steps

It is like this is it

This morning

When the eternal

Nocturnal light of the north

Gives the illusion of day

In the middle of the night

The Journey of the Night

This journey takes place every night

And it is long and arduous

Silence regains

Hardly a word is uttered

And in the morning

Most things said and done are forgotten

Only vague memories remains

Loss of words

It’s structure
