Artist's Description

A matter of perspective

For I am there on the stony side of the road,
you are the one walking barefeet in the sand.

For I am the one climbing over the highest rocks,
you can walk on the straight path leading to the goal.

For I envy you of your smooth way of living,
you look at me with a longing.

A longing I can barely understand -
but you are reaching out for grabbing my hand.

I give you a hold and here you are -
on my part of the road where stones and cobbles lay.

Without asking you look at me and smile:
‘Why not walking together? Mile and mile?
The stony road looked comfortable to me -
more to learn and much more to see!
So I chose your side of the way …
and if you let me to – I’d love to stay!’

The arm I offer you with my broadest grin:
‘Rejecting this would be a sin!
Or worser – an error it would be -
letting you go … my friend and not my enemy!’

So – along we stride on the rocky road …
and it seems as if we would be walking barefeet in the sand.

Words by me as well!

Although the way seems to be stony from time to time … it is worth walking it!
