„Seeing”


I look at the world and see:

Glimmer of hope in Old Man’s eyes.

Pain of existence in Child’s eyes.

Resignation in Friend’s eyes.

Tenderness in Mother’s eyes.

 

God in eyes of my own.

Regardless of everything and all that happens
We live. And though everything changes
All stays the same.

We’re not aware of life, existence, breathing.
We do not know our own selves, others, anything.

We want to own everything and everyone;
Force it into our truth, our vision of the world.
We desire all, we chase everything.

We fear everything, every opportunity.
We fear everything will be as it was.
We fear nothing will be as it was.
We fear stagnation and fear changes.
We fear we won’t get what we want.
We fear we will get what we want.
What then..?

The world is what we think it is.
But truly? What is it?

Does anyone still questions?
Does anyone still do anything worthwhile?

Are you there?
Are you?

(Translation by Iza)

I woke up.

In spite of nightmares of everydays.

I woke up.

To begin the day anew.

I woke up.

Finally on the right side of the bed.

I woke up.

Finally the sun shines through my eyes.

I woke up.

No longer tired or sleepy.

I woke up…

Suddenly I drift up in the air.

And yet….

At last I woke up.

Now I’m almost certain.

Previous awakening was a dream.

And now.

I woke up…

To some degree.
