A Few Observations – The First 25 Years of a Dreamer

Light doesn’t always bring clarity
Sometimes it brings blindness
wrapped in ethereal linen
Sound doesn’t always make you listen
It could easily make you deaf
to everything else
Dark isn’t always dangerous
It can guide you to a self-portrait
because there is nothing else to see
Silence isn’t always silent
Sometimes there’s one beautiful note
amidst the screams of the world

Venus Flytrap – The First 25 Years of a Dreamer

I got a venus flytrap for my birthday
That was in the beginning of autumn
I was so excited to see if it would catch any flies the coming summer
So I watered it and took care of it as best I could
But I was worried that it didn’t get enough sunlight
So I put it out on the balcony one day
I promised myself
I would take it back inside as soon as it got too cold
Of course, I forgot about it
My venus flytrap is now dying
as it stands on the table in front of me
It’s all withered and tortured
I hope it has a chance
of surviving a piece of shit like me
