Be open to new things in your mind and in your life.
You want to perform a miracle? Forgive yourself. Listen to yourself.
It was a sad and cloudless morning
I took my pen out of my kit
And put a feather in my head
Did I really think it would help me to write best?
I ate an apple and drunk some tea
but the ideas were still not pouring out of me.
I started crying from despair
then I went to the fridge to eat a pear.
“Let’s see a movie” I told myself
“Or read a book that would be the best!”
I run with joy up and down
even my spider thought:
“we have a crazy one around”
The evening found me in the bathtub
thinking “that’s it, my fate as a writer it’s done”.
I threw away my pens and pencils
even my favorite notebook full of sketches.
Two months passed and I still cry.
I always thought I would be a writer for life.
I walk pass the places I loved to write
and I don’t speak with people I used to inspire.
Friends have left me all alone
and I have no one to turn to when I feel alone.
They say “you act like your best friend died”
which is true my writing has gone out of sight!
Searching and searching I sat by the sea
I closed my eyes and my mind was full of dreams.
An empty page came my way
and I started writing about my long day.
Christmas is a feeling
Let it fill your heart
Let it fill your mind
Let it play and dust
the corners of your mind
I cannot give you the wisdom of the world
for I am still looking for the secrets within myself.
I cannot teach you not to be afraid
for it is something you must find for yourself.
I cannot show you miracles and magic
for you don’t believe in me yet.
I cannot talk to you about the stars, the moon, the sky
for you have the ability to discourage me
every time I try.
I cannot show you and let you believe that money is not important
for everything you look and seek is… moneywise important.
I have failed to make you see the things I can create
for every time I try to breath “it’s not enough” is all you have to say.
I cannot make you understand how much love I feel for you
for you think that words have no matter
and they are the simplest “things” we have learned how to use.
And I try to make you see what words can do
But you keep saying
“show me actions, not words, that is what stays on”
But you forget that actions fade through time.
Though words stay strong and still
through every possible time.
So this is what I wrote for you
a small poem from my heart
so you can have it with you
and remember that the present
is the gold key as such:
I cannot give you tomorrow
for today is all I have,
but I can give you this moment
and to me this is my whole world unlocked.
Rainy drops on a rainy day
Makes your week rainy in every way
Make a wish and close your eyes
A rainy drop can make it right.
Snowflakes falling from the sky
A magical moment – don’t ask why
Don’t look down as they fall
Look up and see the windstorm
Close your eyes
Open your mind
The time is coming
That you will fly
Open your wings and stay still
Surrender your mind
And you will be free.
