About to sleep
in my bed.
Oh, what's that?
Crumbs of bread,
Killing my nap,
One man chat.
what the heck.
No comfort pad.
Dear aggressive self,
I know you have a lot of reasons to be angry, mad and disappointed. Unfulfilled dreams, little hope, sheer dissatisfaction. You keep quiet, eating silently from the pan of frustration. Spoon by spoon. The pressure is rising like in a closed pot of boiling water. It's getting hot, too hot. You are near to explode, ready to beat the shit out of everything or everyone.
But stop! Hold on for a second.
Who is this guy you are about to batter? What did he do? Yeah, it's his strange glance towards you. It's a shove he obviously did on purpose. Ok, that's enough! Just throw your fists and kicks at him. He deserves it.
But stop. Hold on for another second.
What does he deserv...
Like a Present
I am sure you remember last Christmas or your birthday or any other occasion on which you received presents.
I am sure you also remember how excited you were finally being allowed to unpack every single beautifully or less beautifully wrapped package.
But did you really take notice?
Did you really pay attention to the gift wrapper?
Was it the gift wrapper that made you feel happy putting the biggest smile on your face?
Was it the gift wrapper that surprised you and took away your breath?
Was it the gift wrapper that moved you to tears in infinite gratitude?
Or was it the gift wrapper disappointing you expecting something different?
Was it the gift wrapper that made yo...
'Be a dreamer. Not only in bed.
Cause if you stop dreaming there is nothing left but a frustrating reality.'
Manhood and maturity is not determined by numbers.
It's a product of mindset and attitude.
I am missing something.
A crucial part of my personality.
Indispensable for my soul.
It eloped. Didn't return so far.
Did I slight it without knowing?
My busy life letting me forget?
Why disappearing traceless
without telling me something?
I am thinking about it. A lot.
But can't find any solution.
Being lost in dazzling confusion.
I remember bygone days.
When words flowing untamed
Like an endless rapid stream.
Unable to catch and fix them all
in a unique piece of literature.
Things are tough and tiring
to even find a point to start.
Where did you go my creative mind?
My well-known inspiring friend.
Are you hiding where I don't expect?
Behind all the bullshit bothering me?
the swallows' unburdened flight.
Morning still young.
Delighitng me with twittering song.
them high above the church steeple.
A glimpse heavenwards.
Shady silhouettes bustling about.
Which place their flight is leading them to?
Back to their self-made nest they come?
How does rapture of the flight feels alike?
I am dreaming.
Oh dear, could I just lift off
as the swallows in the early morning sunlight.
having the feel of weightlessness being free.
Aimlessly flighing into the blue.
Losing myself in the infinity of an embracing sky.
And at the end of the day
returning home to my own nest of concealment.
Der Flug der Schwalben
Ich schaue zu
der Schwalben unbeschwerten Flug.
Der Morgen noch jung.
Sie mich entzücken mit gezwitschertem Lied.
Die Flügel tragen
sie hoch über den Kirchturm hinaus.
Ein Blick gen Himmel
dunkel Silhouetten ihrer selbst er lässt erspähen.
Ich frage mich:
An welchen Ort ihr Flug sie treiben mag?
Ins gemachte Nest sie wieder kehren zurück?
Wie sich der Rausch des Fluges wohl anfühle?
Ach könnt ich abheben
wie die Schwalben im Sonnenlicht der Früh'.
Empor steigen so hoch
im Gefühl der Schwerelosigkeit so frei.
Fliegen ohne Ziel ins Blau'
mich in der Endlosigkeit des Himmels verlieren.
Um am End...
What a beautiful night.
Stars shine bright.
Breathing in deeply,
Some cool fresh air.
Shooting stars flying.
Soon after dying.
Enjoying the silence.
Far off any violence.
Wanna lift off and fly,
Into the dark blue sky.
Disgressed in dreaming.
Stress slowly leaving.
Time ticking away.
Starting to pray.
Equity awaits the day,
Judging from the Bench.
Seeking for revenge,
With unexampled bent.
Living with consent
to nature and life,
Thwarting the dive,
Down into the fire.
Burning the vicious liar.
Still lying here,
Under the muffling atmosphere
Sun rising up soon
Thinking beyond the Moon.
Illuminated by the light,
Of stars shining bright,
In that beautiful night.
I cannot await the day on which I finally get released from the prison of my own anxieties without ever being indented again.
Until then I will remain a prisonor of fear.
And my only hope is.......
Or smashing them
Still a Present!
Stepping over barriers you and the people around set for yourself is an important lesson in life.
There is no other chance to grow.
Slandering is the symptome of an incomprehensive and intolerant mind.
Treat it with love and respect!
❤ ️👫 👬 👭
I am lying here for hours and hours.
Thinking of everything. Remembering nothing.
My head is a mess. Not just my hairstyle.
I have everything I need. What is missing?
I can't find it.
Here they come. Sorrows. A lot of them.
Stop it please. It's enough!
I am waiting for the eagle to pick me up. Showing me the world from above.
Am I a dreamer?
Is it a waste of time? Dreams are for the nights.
As soon as the sun rises reality takes over control.
Reality is logical. Dreams are not.
I don't want to believe that.
"Chase your dreams." I don't want to chase them in the night.
I am afraid of the dark.
the sun is shining. And I am dreaming.
Be yourself they say.
Don't be afraid they say.
Reach for your goals they say.
Do what makes you happy they say.
Take a risk they say.
Be brave they say.
Listen to your heart they say.
Are they really listening?
Are they brave themselves?
Do they take risks?
Are they happy with What they do?
Are they reaching for their goals?
Aren't they afraid?
Or do they fake themselves?
It doesnt matter. They are Right.
Sometimes you need to take a break. Spending some extra minutes in bed after you woke up. You feel recovered and relaxed nevertheless it seems as if your body wants to keep you lying flat. There is no inner motivation to leave this warm and softly cushioned place. Suddenly voices in your head emerge telling you to not waste your day and stand up to work on this and that and you may agree but still......still there is one who disagrees. Your body not only disagrees but resists in its most passive form. Doing nothing. It is your brain who wants you to get up but it is your body who says "No". That is probably the only situation in life in which your body is dominant over your mind. So you liste...

For many of us the pursuit of happiness is comparable to finding your way through a big labyrinth in the quest of a secret treasure. 💎
Shall we go right ➡️or shall we go left➡️? Better turn back↩️?
We may roll a dice. 🎲
But do we really want to rely on luck? 🎰
Not a good idea.
Why don't we just climb up the wall to look at the situation from above... 👀
A second and higher sphere providing us with different information.
It requires bravery and strength. 💪
So, let's start with some pushups!
And we may find our personal treasure of happiness. 💎😊
I am trying, always trying my best.
Yet I don't feel pride in my chest.
It's the visceral fear to die tryin'.
With a pitiless aim to see me cryin'.
Puts in all effort to make me fall.
It never stops pursuing its call.
Beyond a try, I want to succeed.
That's the corn for my pride to feed.
Achieving a goal matters all along.
You and me, we may be totally wrong.
A lil' shift in the view of success.
Plunge into the beauty of progress.
Defining success in the goal itself,
Means to diminish its own wealth.
Set a goal and work your way up.
Enjoy the change and never stop.
That is success and not the red card.
Because you did really try hard.
I guess I think too much. Wait, do I really think too much?
Or do I think not much enough? Maybe thinking in the wrong direction.
But thinking about what? I am confused.
What is all that stuff in my head that desperately tries to be heard?
It just gets lost in the endless cloud of voices and and noises crushing my consciousness.
Was it something important? Have I just missed a crucial message? I hope I didn't.
I always try to be clear in my head. Clear in my thoughts. Clear in my goals. Clear about myself.
But I have the feeling that I am far from clear. It seems my mind doesn't want to be tidied up.
That's a strange feeling.
And there are all these questions. Are you doing the right thing...
I don't know where I shall start.
My mind is full but yet so empty.
It's always the most difficult part.
No one can help it's all about me
Kicking things off and find a start.
A year ago my attention attracted
By a beautifully shaped appearance.
My mind not able To be distracted
Afflicted by your strong interference
Thinking about you sorely tempted.
Our relationship grew slowly stronger.
We gently took it to the next level
Our ways now crossed for longer.
Couldn't imagine what a real jewel
Is hidden in that little natural wonder.
You made up your way into my space
Tasting you fully changed my state
You do good to me coming in grace
The moment we met shifted my fate
at the beginning I thought you were just another app. An app where you can write something and share so I decided to give you a try.
I couldn't imagine where this journey would take me to but now I know. And I have to thank you for that.
You brought me into contact with so many amazing people all over the world. No matter if they are from India, Greece, the USA, México, China or Germany, all of them are open-minded, smart and most importantly respectful with each other. They enriched my life and make me happier every day.
Thank you Lettrs for bringing all these amazing people together.
People tend to condemn something they don't understand rather than trying to understand it at first.
That's a big misconception!
Have you ever seen a guy
doing something absolutely strange?
and you asked yourself why?
your countenance obviously changed.
You frown while walking by
shaking your head just wondering.
Why not going over and say Hi?
Asking cause you aren't understanding.
Are we held so captive today
imprisoned in our own little bubble.
Haven't we anything else to say?
Rather staying out of any trouble.
What if this guy standing there
has for your questions the right solution?
No frown, it's sometimes the rare.
The things evoking the most confusion.
Stay open and embrace variety.
Look around, let your little bubble pop.
Show yourself and our frowning society
that open-mindness is absolutely on top. ...
In these daYs I remember an old quote. It says:
"Laughing is the best medicine."
So please, be smart and take your daily medicin.
"Time to say thank you"
In this demanding world where people want something from you and you want something from them we shouldn't forget one thing.
When was the last time you said thank you?
Thank you to the postman for bringing your awaited letters and annoying adverts.
Thank you to the nice guy holding the door for you (yes boys you are also allowed to say thank you. It doesn't mean that he would fall in love with you).
Thank you to the nice shop assistent of your favorite bakery for packing in these deliciously smelling sandwiches.
Thank you to the bus driver for taking you to your destination.
Thank you to all the promoters on the street who try to show you their exclusive offers.
