The Adjustment II

Standard

Tomorrow will come
Look up from your wounds
Today will end
Look for your next sun
It’s a promise
Stumbles before fly
Trust, do trust
Tomorrow will arrive
Tomorrow always arrives on time

The Jar

Standard

Expectation
Frustration
Rage
Dismay
My emotions broke the jar
In the air, everything in the air
They rain like confetti
They snow like firework
I implode; I explode
Tears and foam; champ and shivers
And he holds me, he holds me steady
He soothes me, he pats me like a kitty

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 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 Clock

Standard

Step back
To look further
Pause for a while
To think faster
There are no rules
Just truths
There are no limits
Keep your pursues
