To see my life with different eyes... by 


To see this life with different eyes…

On a rainy day,
it happens to me,
that I start to complain.
There is no sun, there is just…

Rain, Rain, Rain…
How often did I complain?

But I forgot that without that rain,
I couldn´t live.

When I have to work,
and the work is growing,
and there never seems to be an end
There is no free time, no time to relax… just

Work, Work, Work.
How often did I complain?

But I forgot that without that working,
I couldn´t live.

When the house is always crowded,
with people who want to meet or see me,
when people are talking and talking and talking
but never listen to ME

People, People, People…
How often did I complain?

But I forgot that without friends,
I couldn´t live.

I´m very clear, I know what I want,
if life doesn´t follow my plans as it should,
there´s a lot of reason to complain.
But maybe there are different eyes to see through.

Life,Life,Life.
How often did I complain.

Maybe I forgot, that I am not god,
that life is the one, that makes me live.

On a sad day,
it sometimes happens to me,
that I start to complain
There is no brightness, no sun, but isn´t there love?

Love, Love, Love
But how often did I complain?

I should be so thankful, focus on love,
without it I couldn´t live.

I feel often blue,
there´s much to complain,
and sometimes this world seems to be like a chain,

but if I I want progress,
I should follow the advice,
to see my life with different eyes.

K.C. Wanjek, November 2010.

    I just do not know what to say BB. Such clarity … the way you put your feelings into words.
    Ronny says it, this one of your best works.
    Full of reality and realisation, full of self-criticism and love full of emotion and willpower.
    This is a truely inspiring write!
    Instant fav for sure!
