The words blank indulgences

Our hopes dream unfulfilled

Betrayed love seeks solace in fleeting sounds of a voluptuous embrace

The rooftops jurors of a martyrdom passion

who confessed found redemption

And the anchors of the soul shout justification ...




Ι Surrender



We count steps in life

Jumps tie us to the earth

Reflections whip our mind

Love agonizes over body

suffocated by the superficial explosion of mental tension

Love without care

wounded looking for volunteer beggars

The words are deceitful

Souls really small

The cracks of light are dwindling ...

They crush us

And this light - as a sacred Olympic flame –

fades into historic oil lamps


and spiritual achievements

are invalid

Guilt is the key

I stay here

And I suffer ...






My soul, do not be in pain

smile heroically

Where you are

Wherever you go

Fight your way to the front

Do not be afraid

Life belongs to the brave

To the audacious courageous

Not to the common and humble


And if you are in pain, do not show it, do not cry

The strong don't cry

Neither do men,

they wear pants

For God's sake

They will make fun of you

They will expel you

They will call you insignificant and unworthy

And if you wish, keep it

And if you want, limit it

And if you crave something, grit your teeth

Do not miss the opportunity

To submit to the offensive

Wishlist of the rulers

To fall into the mud of their shoes

To identify with the darkness of their mental poverty

One thing don't forget,

To retrieve the wreck of your soul…
