Egoism has a face


 

 

There are people with extinct light
In their eyes and hearts
They embody greed and selfishness
Are the closest to themselves
Walk over corpses for an advantage
They order, they command
See others as a means to their purpose
Seek for power and influence
Want to control, determine
Have a heart made of stone
Are possessed by their possessions
Watch lurking over their “achieved things “

They don’t know how poor they are…

Self-cheating


 

We just want to hear
What we like
Any truth that is contrary to us
We sweep under the carpet

Are we afraid
That our innermost is discovered?

Are we anxious
That the truth harms others?

Are we frightened
That we lose appreciation?

Are we scared
That our ego is losing something?

It is an illusory world
That we are building
Leading us to dependency
On the opinions of others…

How much honesty towards ourselves do we have?…

Cry of my heart


 

 

My words are a cry
Of my heart
People, brothers and sisters
Let’s not seek the fight
Battle among one another
Let us meet in kindness
With compassion and love
Let us free ourselves from hate
Of being better, of craving for power
To find each other in peace
Let our hearts speak
Not our mind

People, brothers, sisters
Let’s replace self-interest.
To help each other
Bury prejudices
Serving each other selflessly
Overcoming pride and ego
Finding our own mistakes
Not those of the others
To make us better
To be higher
To create envy
But to create harmony
Togetherness, not selfishness

People, dear brothers, sisters
We’re all one
No-one’s better, nor worse
In our hearts we are all equal
Let’s stop waging war
Because every war
Is a war against ourselves
Let our hearts speak
Not our mind…

This path begins
By ourselves – individually:
The way of love and generosity…

Let us begin – not tomorrow, NOW…

Power game


 

 

There are always only a few people
Who decide over war and peace
While the common people suffer
Mostly in the event
Of an escalation between nations

They are the pawns
Of a strategic power struggle…
