Plan for the day


Plan for the day

Ticking the clock
Remind the life
Even it is no sense
Non stop circle
Carry the journey

Seconds minutes and hours
Jump into days weeks months and years
Making plans hanging calendars

Property extends
Without body and soul
Showing openness
Desire to be encaged
Having collected
Talking humanity

Shooting to democracy
Crying for freedom
Acting multiple characters
In the Theatre of Greece

In the mean time
While everything happen
I want to make
A different plan


Early morning I get up
Adjusting my mind
Keeping promises to myself
To have breakfast of hope

Walking through the jungle
Give me the fear and trust
Blossoming flowers and singing birds
Teach me the beauty of unity
Unity in diversity

On the way I meet people
Smiles left faces
They give lesson of empathy
In return I grant the honesty

We have our lunch with
New born happiness
Sharing equal smell of humanity

I am tired and thirsty
No turn back
Even it is rough and tough
Making fresh
Having rest
Drinking pure water by the river
Enjoy the nature little bit

On the way I look back
Guests of trusts
Burden of tasks
Credible challenges
Follow me

End of the sun set
Welcoming to dark
I finish my trip
Unfinished things
Handing over to night

I have the dinner
At the room of lighted candles
It is not the day or the night
Light or the dark

Memorised mind
Stepped back to the past
Collected moments came back soon
Soul of principles with my paint brush
Between the light and dark of feeling
Paint on canvas of the life
With transformed colour of beauty
