Shanti

birth, birdsong
and fire escape
flight, safe way
the angels call
unfold the papers, the sheets, the wings
insecurity and no remorse
righteousness and telephone
retrial, dial, call
endeavour.

drama
drama

timeless home,
countless illusions
I shoot them all
in a moment
curse and replace them.
the weight of disbelief is heavy
though my world has regained
consciousness of itself

drama

years I spent
in captivity
waiting for
a God to come
from above, outside or anywhere
to take my troubles away
years I didn´t dare to bend
my knees and pray
bad enough

drama
drama

enclose myself
in a prison of fear
death surrounds me
feel so empty
I tried to find life but life found me
it thrills, it chills and confuses me
In silence and retreat I find
sweet consolation
endeavour
