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.

Life on your own terms and why most people can’t do it?

I admit. I can’t live a so-called normal life. The last time I had a normal job was sometime in the late eighties. I have taken many risks, I have traveled a lot, and because I had an open mind, I met many wonderful people around the world.

I like to work with my own schedule and I like to have the freedom to choose the people around me.

I don’t need any negativity around me. We have just one life, and I prefer to experience life on my own terms.

Of course, it’s not always easy, but life can be hard anyway, so is it better to live your life with your own rules?

Hello Darkness

Hello darkness

You are still here
I can see you now
You were away a long time
But now you came back

I admit
I missed you
Sometimes it’s easy to be with you

You know me
You understand me
But if you stay here
I can’t go back

So my old friend
Farewell until we will see again

Goodbye darkness
