Burn out

The sole purpose of a candle lies
in its burning out.
For people it is less than wise
ignoring what’s about.

To them the burning is a loss
of energy and power
that melts away and leaves a gross
feeling that makes them cower.

They cannot lift their heads in pride
and tell you to get lost,
nor take the troubles in a stride,
because they payed the cost.

Aus meinem Buch:

Inspired by pictures I wrote poems about life in general, nature and man. Some poems are humorous, others serious, because we humans are not always so smart to consider the effects of our lives. Most of the pictures are watercolours by an as yet not much known painter.
