your brown-green freckled face

your blue eyes

your soft, soothing skin

your white hair

everytime I fall

I fall to you

my sweet Lilly

but Lilly died

they burnt Her

and Lilly cried

while they teased Her

you are so magical

your fluids sparkling

you’re so mysterious

all your many colours

I fall in love

in love with you

my sweet Lilly

but Lilly died

they cut Her

and Lilly cried

while they stripped Her

it is them

they take away

without grieving

my sweet Lilly

without you

we can´t live

please understand

our Lilly

She won´t make it

to next spring

but they don’t know

you don’t know

now Lilly died

they killed Her

sweet Lilly death

the people tortured

and they poisoned

discussions come and go

and never end

the meaning of life

is an old subject


without sustaining life

holding on to ideals

nobody knows why

but everybody behaves like a sheep

like blindfolded idiots

we travel a common way

and do not doubt

only few doubt

but nobody knows exactly

the answer to all the whys

it is all veiled

a troubled vision

as if we are not supposed to know

the few stand alone

yet their voices do not break

the sheep only eat

but the shepherds try

to collect the common sense

and call out the awareness

doubtless once it ends

when is just one of the whys

we hope and fear

and share useless prayers

does a shepherd need to tell

his sheep the grass is bad?

any fool should behold

the discussion is a waste of time

burn the outdated thoughts

the shepherd needs to tell

his sheep to leave the way

and take another turn

You have to have something to hide from, even though you feel like breaking apart and drifting away in different directions, time after time. My regular journal has transformed to three seperated writing books, as if my thoughts did not take the same turn in time. Therefore, I think drowning is the right word to describe any status of doubt while dragged into unwelcome situations. Drowning in the open ocean, gulps of water coming in, not willing to give in and to dive for the dared fantasies, the dreams that lay waiting just beneath the surface, not willing to make a final decision. Not yet. First we play on safe, desperately and slowly sewing a net. Just in case I need to be caught.

Education, colleges, skills, considering the world. The planet needs to be saved vs. the most beautiful voice and a cello, with piano, violins, a guitar, discolights, a crowd in front of a stage and happy faces staring at me.

I cannot believe how much I love culture, and how much I hate certain people ruining forests, depleting fish stocks, contaminating water and relying on easy-accessible energy sources such as fossil fuels… But it would be wrong to say I hate myself. I live in a country with a big ecological footprint, and I am neither a vegetarian nor living simple. But I do eat plain food.

We are all concerned about the environment, but it worries me most that the changes that need to be accomplished are unrealistic, in a way it involves changing a whole culture in a very short time. And it involves finding a solution for poverty, food shortage, pollution, selfish businesman running an oil or car company and so much more. But it involves most of all a change in our way of living: no more two televisions, personal computers, bathrooms, cars houses. No more five brands for one product, fashion that alters every year, luxuruous hotels etc. It will destory the economy and ruin the affluence we have built up for so long a time. Might one still wonder whether the above solutions are possible in any way…

Demotivated I realise the globalization put everything in the spot lights, but some people – important, rich people – seem to close their eyes. Are they blinded by greed? Or do they just realise the effort will not be worth the prize?

People hide from the truth, and unconciously we share this fear that the rich people may be right, and that they are acting because they know the battle for planet earth has already been lost.
