What a difference a day makes


I often wonder
how different your situation
looks like after a night of good sleep
when you can again look
on your life situation
we are so driven by our own life situations
stressed by our jobs
and emotional problems
that we simply forget
our normal mode
being at ease with ourselves
we are often so thrilled
and electrified by what’s going on
that we even forget ourselves
how fast has life become
we are involved in the great time machine
called “my life”
but “my” life isn’t my life at all
torn between a full schedule and demanding tasks
running after success and dedication
let’s step back one or two steps
let’s experience the joy of breathing
and being ourselves again
who else can I be than myself
