I've Learnt

I’ve learnt to understand that….
A prohibitive degree of inner freedom –
Not a caprice but a strain.
Up to the end it will remain!

I’ve learnt to understand that….
The tales we dream up
We write out of our own head.
And…. we should cherish that!

I’ve learnt to break up the rules,
So that no one should be hurt.
Using my own tools,
I would like to avoid the dirt.

I’ve learnt to believe that….
There are no ideal relations.
They can be sometimes  brief,
Very often with a frustration.

I’ve learnt to feel that….
Striving for harmony I love disharmony.
Loving in everything the truth
The lies sometimes sooth.

I’ve learnt to be patient,
Though not everyone knows it.
It’s better to be absent
Than to throw a stone into a shit.

I've learnt not to be afraid of any competition,
There is only right or wrong choice,
There is only someone's ambition,
There is only strong or weak voice.

I’ve learnt to understand that….
Love can't be found where it doesn't exist,
Love can't be hidden where it is.
And... always has it’s own sound .

I've learnt to accept that....
I feel comfortable and relaxed,
If someone rules the most,
Only when I want it myself and it is dosed.

I've learnt not to argue
And ...to say 'adieu'.
