Truthfulness and ego


 

Some only want to hear
What they want to hear
Flattering words for their ego
To hide the truth?

Truthfulness goes along the way of honesty
Is not pretending or making a show…

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…

A bit of attention and love


 

 

We, humans, are social beings
Need each other
Seek for comfort, security
Want to be respected

Some look for the outer way
In clothes, in styling
Outbid each other with tattoos and piercings
Want through sensation attention

Others brag about money and power
Holding property to show
Invite to disfavor and pride
Want to be envied

Still, others outbid each other
To “celebrate” to be sick in competitions
At the cost of health and life
Want to be in the limelight

Again others escape the world
Search their peace in the virtual world
Carry out their competition there
Want to obtain virtual acceptance

But what do we really want?
A bit of attention and love

We should distribute them unconditionally
Without show and expectation…

Stale words


 

How many times it happens
That we deceive ourselves
We identify us with mere words
Without really knowing,
Practically living them

To make us better
Compared with other?
To demonstrate knowledge?
Or to make a show
In front of us?
Or do we just run after
What is in fashion?…

We try to justify it
With some book-reading
And are even proud of it…

However, when reading
A book about water
We cannot squeeze the water
Out of it – not even one drop…

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…

Accept or reject


 

All what is good for us we accept
All what we consider bad for us we reject
However, often it turns out later
That it was good medicine for us

How many times
We misunderstood it
How many times
We missed this opportunity…
