By
   to forget the essence of time

and breathe

the air around you

so new

(hundreds of years old)

the moon flickered on and off

the sky was a bleeding mind

(gorged) - fattened,

attempts to make a living

out of serenity

to truly realize

the importance of self

love

the voice

to live for the second

to enjoy and simultaneously

learn

from the silence inside

occasionally shattered

by reality

worries

unimportant



You become disinterested

apathetic

why should we worry about tomorrow

when it is today that is concrete?

as the goal

is reached

no satisfaction

alone

do no push thoughts away

this is a mistake,

let them leave you

gradually take control

inner self knows

that the world is selfish

but evil is superficial

good prevails

inside.

all is quiet once again.
