Holzfigur Engelchen auf Halbmond » by 4028mdk09)




you so wanted to be yourself
life had told you, « you will be saved »
but now you stand on the wire
suspicious of the road you paved

you so wanted to be so rich
that all problems you'd be rid of
life responded, « work through them first,
true wealth comes from rising above »

you so wanted to rush forward
but you were still stuck at the dam
life instructed, « don't miss the mark
you'll have to repass the exam »

you so wanted to have free time
« then why sell it to the devil ? »
life hinted, « for dreams unfulfilled
and a prison comfortable ? »

you so wanted to be someone
« then why like someone else behave ? »
life suggested, « and be no one
but to your pretensions a slave »

you so wanted to be helpful
but life replied, « be inspiring ! »
can't do nothing for the mindful
but keep their inner child smiling

you so wanted to get it right
but life shouted, « just be loving ! »
give attention to the faithful
they'll realize their true calling

you so wanted to be secure
but life exclaimed « be more alive ! »
funambulist by your nature
why would an angel fear the dive ?




best wishes to all for the holiday season !
