A New Poem

Hey ♥

I'm sorry for my absence but I have been quite busy in the summer holidays. Well, -- some stuff happened concerning my health and I had to sort it out. Well, I still have to sort it out and school as well. My last school year started and I'm quite nervous tbh ^^" Hahaha, but I will tell you about it another post. 

At first I want to present you a poem I wrote quite a long ago but I only have posted it on deviantart and not here. So here you go: 


Tired 

At school I have many friends yet I’m lonely
I speak to them every day yet none of them know me
At street I see many humans but no humanity
You all talk about money but not about morality


There is a tear between each smile
Why to pretend that it is fine, my heart?
Hoping it will be just for a while
But I know it is tearing me apart. 


Stop looking at me like I’m the monster
Each of you give my heart another fracture
Happiness, why not able to capture?
I tried and tried and tried again. 

I tried
TRIED
I TRIED
tried.



....I’m tired.


Hope you liked it :) Please leave a comment and I hope you are having a nice day ♥

P.S.: Sorry for the short post. My next will be longer. I promise :)

Right and Wrong

Hey ♥

I'm sorry that I have been absent for a while but I promise to post more often. 
Here is another poem I wrote but the next post will be definetely a newspaper article again :) 



Right and wrong

What is the difference between right and wrong?
Are really all women weak and all men strong?
Does the struggle of equality take too long?

Does it really matter if you are LGBTQ or straight?
Should we not love each other and end this hate?
What is so wrong  and so bad
about having two mams or two dads?
The child can still be raised.
The child can be loved.

So stop to insult and hurt them, please!
Nothing of their life is a disease
Do we not all have emotions?
Are we not all just humans?
Are we deep down not the same?
No matter gender, sexuality, race or name?

Do we not all share an important part?
‘cause we all have a beating heart.


Dedicated to all peope who have to fight for their human rights
I don’t want to my opinion on you but I want you to think about it. What is right and wrong? How do you know that something is right or wrong?

You are welcome to tell you my opinion about it in the comment but also normal comments on my poem are welcome J


Have a nice day :)

Understanding each other

Hey, I'm sorry that I have been absent for a while but I was quite busy with school and exams ^^" But my summer holidays start in a month so I will be able to upload more of my articles and poems.
Some weeks ago, I uploaded on deviantart my poem Understanding each other but I haven't done it on my blog yet, so here you go:

Understanding each other

I understand your point of view
I will let you finish, I will
But please before you keep using insults
Just think about the results
Why do we have to fight?
Why arguing all day and night?

I understand your belief in god, I do
A religion is helpful sometimes
to go through really hard lifetimes
But about my disbelief, do you have a clue?
You assume I have no morality
But I still help others with sincerity

You think I have no purpose of life,
Well, I just do not believe in afterlife
I live for the moment, I live for love
You believe there is someone above
Who you cannot see
But always feel
Someone who is with you all day
And shows you the right way

But still we are not so different
We both look for acceptance
And love and peace and independence
Does that not count, in the end?
So please do not see me
As your enemy
We can be friends
How would that be?

I’m sorry that I have interrupted you
Please continue
I want to hear your view

I do


You can find the poem also on deviantart:  http://crazymai.deviantart.com/art/Understanding-each-other-458341214
So I do not  want to say with my poem that religious people are always have these prejudices against atheist and I also don't want to imply that all atheists share the same belief as me. I also do not want to say I'm an atheists, but what I actually want to say with this poem is:
Arguments and discussions with others are really important, so that we get educated and see others' perspectives. BUT it is also important to accept others' opinions. Instead of insulting each other and living with prejudices, you should listen to others and try to understand them.
You have met an unsymphatic Muslim, well,.. there are dozen of others Muslims who will be nice.
 You had a discussion with a really "aggressive" atheists, well there are also other atheists. 
Don't put everyone in the same nutshell, don't use stereotypes. 
Get to know people, try to understand their beliefs and movements.
I'm neither Christian nor Muslim but I have read parts of the Bible and also parts of the Qu'ran. 
Why? 
Because I wanted to understand their religion more. It is something different to watch a documentary or read a book about it. Because it will always imply something or has somebody's opinion in it. 
BUT to read different books, watch different documentaries, talk to people, etc.. make it better to understand things.
Maybe you will say "That is too much work".
 
Well, but is it not worth it?


Maybe I could make you think about some things in life.

Have a nice day

Live



Hey ♥
I'm sorry that I haven't written a post about the European election results but after Sunday evening, I wasn't able to put my thoughts into a good article. I don't want to lie so... I was really shocked about the results all over the Europe. Not only that I got a cold on Monday and felt really tired, the turnouts really hurt me. It is also worrying that parties like AfD, Front National, UKIP, etc.. got many seats in the European parliament and I can't imagine how it is going to be like in the next weeks or months. 
Anyway, I'm working on an article about it and also about the commission president but now I want to present you a poem that I just have finished. 


Live.





Have you ever thought about a purpose of life,

and if it exists, an afterlife?

You know there is more than TV

and no need to love the media industry

I know, a purpose is hard to find,

but just keep this in mind:


Ignorance is a high price,

Take it or refuse

Is it so hard to decide?



Do I really have to mention

that there are other dimensions

to think about life

and how to use your mind?

You refuse and rather be blind

But have you ever tried?

Do you have a clue?
Do you know what to do?



All men and women of history

tried to solve the world’s mystery:

What’s the purpose of life?

What’s the purpose of my life?

So please don’t be scared

and don’t become exasperated

‘cause everyone has to decide

how to live and all has its price.



So try to break the border

and think about all orders.

Just listen to your heart

Question and criticize

You just have to start.

Ask yourself: "Who do I want to be?"

"And what to others expect of me?"

But in the end it only counts

what is important to you



Maybe some of you will wonder, why the last two lines do not rhyme and I actually did it on purpose. Because I met many people who cannot and maybe do not want to think out of the box. So the end should tell you as a reader, to break orders and question everything. Of course, I don't want to tell you to break laws or commit crimes. Now, I just want to let you think about the purpose of life and that sometimes rule are there to be broken. 
Sometimes you have to start something new or to see things in another perspective, to find more about yourself or to learn something. You have to go inside of yourself and ask yourself, what is really important to me? 
I hope you can understand what I meant and maybe my poem could make you think about life. 


Have a nice weekend.

Europen election - GO VOTE!



Tomorrow is the European election in Germany and it is also my first time to vote. Finally I’m 18 and now allowed to vote. But something that annoyed me in the last week is the attitude of non-voters.  
Is it not crazy how some non-voters present themselves in media as a superior political group who are “too smart” for the most fundamental democratic right. Fair enough, I can understand that German general election was not that “exciting” because it was merely about voting for CDU or SPD. Nothing really changed. Is it not all the same? Who actually cares about Europe? My vote is not going to change anything. That is what I had to hear a lot in the last weeks.  
An online-survey of the German newspaper Der Spiegel suggests that about 80% of its reader will go to vote tomorrow, while about 12% do not care or are not interested and about 8% are not sure yet. Other surveys I have seen suggest that only 20% knows who Schulz and Juncker are. Shocking, isn’t it?
Anybody who asserts that the European election tomorrow is not important has not informed him/herself enough about it. This election is going to be a turning point because too many Anti-European parties got popular in the last months.  Most of them are not only against the Euro or the Union itself, some are also racist.
 There is UKIP who wants the UK to quit Europe. The AfD (Alternative für Deutschland = Alternative for Germany) who believes it is possible to kick some member states out of the European monetary union. The Front National in France who wants border controls back and to quit the NATO. These are just some of examples in a really long list.  But even though all these parties have different aims, they have one thing in common: They are against the European Union. Against an united Europe.
I actually believe predictions which say that these parties are going to get enough delegates in the European Parliaments (MEPs) to slow down political process.  Nothing is impossible with these circumstances and that is why you have to realize one thing:
It is the first time that we as citizens have the possibility to have an impact on the European commission president. Yes, you read right. It lies in your hand.  But if you don’t vote, you give your lost vote to these parties. And in the worst case, neither Schulz nor Juncker will become European commission president. It would mean that the EU would not get the chance to become more democratic and would lead to more European dolefulness.
 
So all you non-voters out there have to understand that not to vote at all is the wrong choice. Every non-voter is giving his/her vote to the Anti-Europe groups, who were minorities and now get more power. Even though if you do not expect much from Europe as no inflation or no border controls so you can go on holiday to Italy,  then please go voting. Just admit that being a part of the EU has many advantages and accept it. I do not want to influence you which party you need to vote, just decide it for yourself. But please go vote.
I hope I could change your opinion.

I just know it's you



I just know it's you


Before I fall asleep,
I can only think of you
Then my heart skips a beat
And I feel so complete.

I cannot forget
The words you said
The interests we share
The silent moments we had

I think I fell in love with you
I don’t know how
I don’t know why
I just know it's you
