The race of life


On some days I want to rise
against the giants on the path of life,
on other days I want to hide
and cover myself and disappear.

On some days I want to be full of courage
and talk about everything that bothers,
want to cause a word-storm
but on days like today I am speechless.

Some days I can move mountains
and have got a lot of power to start again
but at other times I feel paralysed
from head to toes.

On some days I want to change lives
and want to tell people how to live
but then I look at myself
and seem miserable
and just want to die.
