Dare to dream!

Yes, beautiful moments,

tantalizing hope,

before you get crushed.

Fetal Position 1

Overcome by agony…

I drift into unconsciousness,

it’s a brief respite.

… Fitfully, feverishly I exist …

Alas, when I come to,

the pain is even worse.

(Living tomb)

So, they charged me:

treason against the nation-state.

Hah!

I didn’t abide by their rules.

I was true to myself.

Maybe one day someone

will compare and contrast

the charges

with treason against myself,

against reason, decency

and humanity.

It seems everything I prayed about,

wished, hoped and believed

yesterday,

has become inverted,

being flung in my face,

tauntingly,

today.

Hot Air Balloon 1

Melancholy pervades today’s celebration.

Constant fragility.

Memories of yesterday,

betrayal and pain,

shaping tomorrow.

What hope?

Nothing is impossible,

it seems,

except improvement

of situation.

Żyd wieczny tułacz

The decadence of everyday existence.

Horrors of war and banality.

Every day tragedy

(to which we are consigned) …

Nothing lasts forever, they say,

except the things you hate.

While

peace seems a fleeting dream,

pain, sickness and death

appear constant.

Pivo, Escape, Sleep

Pain overcomes brain.

Need relief, need to escape,

or obliterate.

Ocean, Immense & Bleak

I’m drowning.

Seriously,

it’s taking all my effort to tread water,

to survive.

And you, my loved one,

are more concerned about $1.30,

a triviality.

This is what it means to be human?
