Truth comes to the light


 

 

One can deceive oneself
Hide from others
Believe in his own fairy tales
Convince others to tell the truth
But the truth cannot be deceived
It is there like the sun
Even if clouds are blocking its light
The light of truth always shines
Penetrates all corners
No matter how dark it may be there…

How many sell their honour because of power and money?
Thus tell lies to maintain their egoistic advantages…

One cannot run away from the truth
Sooner or later it will catch up with you…

Empty Phrases


 

 

There are often worlds between words and deeds.
Yesterday still lifted into the sky
Today the cloak of friendship thrown off
With feelings in the wind escaped

Words that sounded credibly faded away
Broken into pieces, lost their validity
On the parquet of unsteadiness
Turning away from friendliness, kindness

Those flattering words echo in the memory
Sounds from afar of moments past
Leaving stars burnt out
Empty phrases, words without content

Shall we believe in flattering words?
Those that turn in the wind?
Lose their content, are forgotten easily?
Those which praised us yesterday and curse us today?

Man promises much and says a lot
Within the turning of his kaleidoscopic feelings
To change his credibility in the wheel of time
Dissolved into punishing silence

Only the language of the heart remains constant
That of the mind is subject to change…

A leaf in the wind…

Darkness cannot be overcome by wearing white clothes… quote by Kabir


 
 

 
 

Missing honesty


 

 

How much nonsense goes out into the world
Out of stupidity, ignorance
Acting and posing
Out of greed for power, money, reputation
To achieve advantages
By a selfish attitude
To be better than others
To instill arrogance
Overconfidence
Dripping vanity
Condemnation
Unfair usage of elbows

Let us see the good in people
Because bad things create bad things
While good things sow good things

Therefore, we have to be more honest with ourselves…

Justification and confirmation


 

In the labyrinth of life
Dead ends are entered
With pride as a drive
Manipulated, mentored

False sights ensnared
In the light of others
Confirmed, impaired
Trap for sisters, brothers

A barb in the heart
To spread illusion
Mind of the art
Black blood infusion

Houses built on sandy grounds
With bricks of charming words
That leave the truth in wounds
To raise illusive worlds

Flattered ways prepared
Where feet are lost
With filth besmeared
The light in frost

Dressed in uniforms
Following the cross
Of worn out norms
In ignorance and loss

A chorus of praise
Along the sky
A costly price
So why…?

Acted kindness


 

 

 

Sometimes we make a show
Perform a play of theatre
Use friendly words
Pretend humbleness, respect

When life comes to test us
We lose self-control
Are hurt within speculations
React: hurting, punishing

Fired arrows find their goal
Through self-made illusions
Revenge onself for being “hurt”
Self-pleased satisfaction

Words of respect
Crumble, fade away
Reveal the true face
Unmask the show

Our mind has thousands masks…
