‘Ortu,

I Sit and wait……

This symphony I hear in a stream

wandering down earth’s path.

No hymn follows my vein

while I linger with words

for a willow of thoughts.

I Am lost as I wait….

To feel or not to feel?

Of these questions I occur my heart

and I wonder hopeless throughout my part.

The waves of mother’s sea

has spoken to me.

I rise as I fall…

Take me away from these

thoughts of emperor

as I rise I choose to fall

for there is none to feel.

The only enemy there is

is the one in me….
Stamp of approval

      Hey Nebula, hoe gaat het met je? Ik weet niet wie zij is, maar het begin opeens…..

      “thoughts of Emperor” at that moment I was not in the ready to be strong, to fight, to be an emperor! Something in me was, but I wasn’t really. So that’s why to feel or not to feel.

      It took me some time to understand myself, but more and more I get who I am supposed to be 🙈🤭❤️ just finding my way to express all of that!

        Amen. I often wish I was nocturnal. I could spend my days living and my nights creating; but you are right. We can manage. There is always enough time for the important things.
