STRUGGLE

RELEASE

                                  Feed me all my fears

                                       I will not give up.

DUALITY

                                     The skin of the soul
                                     Masculine or feminine
                                            See duality.

PILLARS OF COMMUNICATION

Enlightenment

Seek Life after life
Illusive task to obtain
Beyond doubts and fall

Start and end  dramas 
Decipher complexities
Found partial answers 

Paradigm issues
Confusion overate quest
Esteem falters wit

Stand mindful actions
Stuck within clearer pathways
A stretch still needed

Persistent conscience
Always craved  enlightenment
Recall life purpose.

Verlorene Tage/ Lost Days/ Días Perdidos

Tage verlieren sich
Im Nichts der vergehenden Zeit
Wie einsames Herbstlaub



Days vanish in oblivion
In nowhere of the passing time
Like solitary autumn foliage



Días se caen en olvido
En la nada del tiempo pasando
Como hojas solitarias de otoño
