The Pool

Standard

I fell
Down
Downwards
Slowly
Slowly through this thick, dark, muddy water
I drowned
Slow
So slow
Oh no
This disgusting, dirty, messy pool
I feel with my hands
I touch something
A ball
A round hard ball
I rise holding it
I rise with it
Air
Fresh air
Sky
Blue sky
I found an ivory pearl
A perfect, glowing, enchanting pearl

The Casa

Standard

Finding home
I’m finding a home
Without odour
Without nuisance
Finding somewhere
To be my home
A few pairs of worn shoes
A whole backpack of melancholy
I hug myself
So cold, so warm
I dry my tears
Helpless then back to fearless
Finding home
Searching the world
Somewhere I’m cherished
Somewhere I’m the priority
Finding a place
To be my home
Volumes of heart-to-heart journals
An overwhelming number of snapshots
I searched the world
For years on my own
I’m my home
So I thought

The Evil Inside

Standard

It’s the evil inside
The little demon
Talking and talking and talking
Until it breaks your silence
It’s this little guy
His harder and harder pushes
Trying and trying and trying
Until it breaks you into pieces

The Characters

Standard

Some are journeys
Some are destinations
People appear
People leave
Always at the right time
Always for good reasons
They might be different
They all bring lessons

The Interview with KC II

Standard

KC: What are your thoughts on love and relationship?

MW: We think when outside of any romantic relationship. When nearing or in a romantic relationship, we feel.

When outside of a relationship, I think too much. When nearing or in one, I think too, but usually at the end it’s my feelings and instincts that win over reasoning.

KC: What’s life to you? Afterlife? Soul? Next life?

MW: Life is now. Life is problems, difficulties, challenges, obstacles, uncertainties. Live it. Put your heart in it.
Afterlife? Soul? No one knows. We are not even quite sure about this one.

KC: What’s your worth in this world?

MW: How I influence people around me, and the people around them, and so on to the crowd, to the community, to the world, to the next generation, and the generation after that, on and on. Not everyone is capable in doing this of course. But let’s all try our best and do our bit. Bit by bit, step by step, let’s make it a better place.

KC: What’s the most important thing for every individual?

MW: Observe, think, learn, improve.
