Time for Self-Introspection


 

 

Many questions come
Addressed to ourselves:
How has my life been so far?
What have I done wrong?
What can I improve in the future?

So much dirt in my thoughts
Garbage in words and deeds
Pyramid top of a now and here
Time to take stock
Who I was, who I am

How many people have I hurt
Including myself?
In the hamster wheel of equal deeds
Bad habits?
Shame on myself

Every thought, every word, every action
Has a heavyweight
When they hurt
It’s banging against the walls
Of one’s own heart

The scale shows
Where we stand
Honesty and confession may help
To cleanse us from dirt
To become a better person…

Time to bring about the change in us…

Outside Shining – Inside Fouling


 

 

How many angles and corners are there in us
Where chaos and disorder reign
Where dirt accumulates
Dust is setting down?

How many impurities are in us
Which we have neglected
Falling into oblivion
Where no external soap helps?

On the outside nice and clean
Well-groomed appearance among witnesses
Inside without hygiene
There’ s no one watching

But inner dirt
Moves motives on the outside
Hidden, concealed
Determines our thoughts, actions.

Our internal residence
Like a mirror:
What is inside is outside
What is outside is inside

We should be dust and germ-free
That the inner dirt
Does not become external dirt
With the soap of innocence and honesty

We cannot hide from ourselves nor from God…
