Midnight gods

Midnight darkness
I am writing, and I feel gods
Are talking through me

Morning grey
And I realize it was just me.

A clown of the county

Same old story
All the lost opportunities
Just because I couldn’t show real me
But who is real in this insane world?

Today I feel like the king of the world
Tomorrow clown of the county

Today everyone is celebrating with me
Tomorrow they are spitting on me

Why should I show my true face?
Because I can hide behind a clown’s makeup

When night arrives
I can remove my makeup and your contempt.

And move on.

Fighter

Morning
Everything hurts
I have to stand up
New nightmares

More pain
Everything hurts
I had to stand up
I had to face the enemy
Otherwise, I will disappear

More pain
Everything hurts
This is bottom
I have been here before
Nothing new

Just raise up and fight
I am a fighter

Numb your feelings
Ignore the pain
Just keep moving

Still pain
Everything hurts

But I can see you tonight
And there will be a light

I am a fighter
That’s enough.

Being weird should be the new normal

Sometimes, I feel that we all are a bit weird and messed up. We just pretend to be normal. Some people are just better pretenders than others.

A true person is willing to accept his or her flaws and either fix them or accept them as strengths. Because what you might think as a flaw, someone else will think that it is your greatest strength!

But being weird and different is always better than being normal and boring.

With age, comes wisdom?

With age, comes wisdom!

It’s bullshit!

I still do the same mistakes as I used to. For example, sometimes with my workout, I forget to do a proper warm-up, and then, of course, I will pay a price!

Or I think I am still in my twenties, and start pushing hard with my work out!

And in the next two days, I will be unable to walk!

Friday evening, I will take a lot of wine, and my Saturday will be ruined because of a terrible hangover.

Sunday evening, I will buy extra-large pizza, and there goes my diet!

I am over 50 now and I still haven’t learned!

Does Age really come with wisdom?

What about you?
