I often wonder
how differently your situation
looks like after a night of good sleep
when you can again look
relaxed
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

(Volker Schunck)
