Hands

How much you have seen
Where have you been
What have you done
What have you won
Bare hands, hard work
Clearing cleaning others dirt
No amount in pension
no car no mansion
Just me and my brush
Nothing urgent no rush
All my dreams got crushed
Long long time ago

Improbable

Upside down chairs in the air
an aspiring leader, young, with flair
not doing it for power, just for people he cares
a good hard stare, some strange improbabilities

Deadwood

Life has passed
nothing to show
spending last days
vegetative state
In early years
should have stayed late
made people laugh
changed my fate
now my dear
It’s too late

Why

Centuries passed
stood my ground
generations born
Kings sworn
suffered all seasons
and more, before
butchered
slaughtered
was cut down
roots blown
on a piece of land
you ‘own’

Canvas and frame

scorching heat
head to toe sweat
hands getting tired
nails are wet
Hard work,
heart’s work
Created art work
priceless,
sold for pennies
true artists few
fakes so many

It’s time

When the time is up
let me see your face
touch your lips
listen to your heart
last breath release
love will increase
soul will not cease
death in absolute peace
