Fate has left me
On this morning
On this bright summer day
I see upon my way
It round, and it says:
"Fate has left you"
No fate to guide me
I do not know who I am anymore
Fate used to be my light
The thing that opened every door
Because I knew there was a plan for me
Now I'm not so sure
Born into this world for nothing, can that be?
If fate is right, and denial of it wrong
Is this the image of a man who's truly free?
I wonder whether fate has always been my guardian

A pyramid, before my eyes
And they have said, that deep inside
A vault of treasures lies
Dangers await in the chambers
Not from traps, but from a hunter
Who is there to guard all treasure
Riches beyond thought and measure
Chamber by chamber, but nothing I found
Trapped by a darkness blinding my eyes
For on the walls around
There are mirrors
And on their surface there is me
Just staring, not knowing the way
I wonder, if I dare to stay
Will I find the enemy?

The Angel's Crown
Once an angel who roamed the earth
Saw a demon forge darkness so deep she may drown
And on that day all that made her an angel
Was given a name: The angel’s crown
The crown is her kindness
The crown is devotion
To help man rise above all that is evil
And stand against servants of the devil
And in those days there was a great city
filled with poor people who were suffering
so many enslaved, because some in the middle
Where building a tower towards the heavens
“The power’s in your hands
To tear them down and to...

And he was home
And his eyes now see it clearly
What was lost so long ago...
Run, he runs
The sound of drums
No one is coming, but still he hears them
Madness has him in his grip
Squeezing tighter, steps now lighter
Light until the breaking point
Every high flier must come down
Darkness left, taken the crown
Through the darkness that arose
It was lost so long ago
The dream left him
Crashed and burning
Nearly no life and no yearning
Left within a shattered soul
And the pathways through this night ...
UPBEAT INSPIRATIONAL POEM

In these moments
In these moments, when the past is overwhelming
In these moments, when there’s nothing but the scream
Of your soul, reapeating it: “I’m sorry”
when regret is drowning, no hope of a dream
In these moments it comes back with force and passion
In these moments when it mocks your good intent
In the outcome lie the demons of your sin
In the outcome echoes fear of failing once again
In these moments there’s no feeling in your heart to save you
No messiah, you can not command the storm to just be still
Just a human, but when the heart...

The song of a demon
After the great battle was over
What in those stories they do not tell
Is that nothing was truly over
For this demon, condemned to hell
“You shall not seek power!”, oh what does he know
About how it is to dwell in the shadow
Loving indeed! banned for one mistake
The love shown to a witch on a stake
Do you think I wanted this?
Do you think I yearned?
For the flames and fire of hell?
Is this truly what I’ve earned?
Have you never stumbled, my listener
And did you never fall?
How do you proclaim me, piously ...
