A golden dream, a broken soul

The poor young boy exchanged his life with gold,
he wore the golden crown, they called him lord.
They saw him as a god for he had so much power
and he kept watching them for days from his tower.

The young lord was feeling very wealthy and happy,
seeing all this big crowd under him, he felt so lucky.
He considered himself to be someone unique,
and he wanted to be remembered as the rich Greek.

The days passed and the Greek young lord felt alone,
he had no family or wife but just a place on his throne.
Then he ordered his servants to find him a beautiful lady
who would give him love, affection, and a healthy baby.

Many women were being brought there day by day but the king couldn’t find love and he started to pray.
The clock was ticking while he had found gold, but not love
and that thing made him feel like an injured white dove.

A wise man with the name Socrates appeared then,
he told him that he chose gold instead of Zen.
“Zen is a state of bliss that wakes up your soul,
energizes your mind and heart to become whole”

The young boy felt disappointed about what he’d done.
He gave all this gold away to the hungry crowd and ran.
Went to the top of his high tower to get some fresh air
then he had not much to live for and nobody would care.

He took a step ahead, spread his wings to fly away.
The end had come for the young lord to stay.
The crowd was blaming the young lord for his death
and none of them understood that gold has its debt.

A Mother’s Influence

  A Mother’s Influence  Clock’s ticking, birds fly - into the horizon - they are hugging the sky. To listen, to observe, to think, to preserve, to create a mythical stellar dream where he can summon radiant unicorns, and like the stars - to endlessly gleam. Time passes, a boy turns into a man, he loves his mother, and she loves her son. The dark spirits have spoken, he got his heart broken but they couldn’t harm him, his mother nourished his soul, she showed him the way, she became his lighting shield. They never expected to fight a man as strong as him, she taught him to be brave, for the day he would give his precious life, and the whole world he would redeem. Behind every strong, honest, and courageous man lies a strong and caring mother. She sacrifices a part of herself to see him flourish, to become strong, like his father. And when he claims his throne and finds his queen, she is still there to protect him, the mother of the king. Mike Tragas 2022/05/29  Chania, Greece

A boy dies, a King is born

    Born in the wilderness of a cruel and chaotic world, therefore, raised to be quiet and take it all in. A strong paladin with a soft heart, enters the void and slays the demons. The boy dies, a King is born. Fear is forgotten, doubt has vanished. Malevolence, greed and fear are gone, a strong man is a dangerous man. Dignity lies inside him, yet he feeds it - if he must. Resilience solidifies his being, he is unbeatable. He follows his fortune if he must; he kills. He is a king, a poet, a lover - a beast. Mike Tragas 2021/04/30 Sweden, Stockholm

An Old Soul

The sacred consciousness of the projected starlight is mirroring his soul. Cuddling the ethereal magnificence of a lifeless shadow, once lived on earth. To him, it’s all familiar - the harmony of existence and the melody of his heartbeat. He’s been there before, seen it all, but there is no elixir to consciousness, he knows. Seasons come and go, and so does he; in different forms, shapes, and sizes. He loved women, and he loved men. He loved them all; for he was not always a man. Solitude reminds him of the old days of the war, where he was a soldier. He killed and got killed with honor and respect; until his last breath. They asked him to share his story. He refused. They didn’t deserve to know then. Knowledge without experience turns one arrogant because of the presence of fear. Emotions are just temporary. He has no need for them as he knows they make him weak. He observes souls trapped in madness and despair, but he knows there is nothing to do. They will call him crazy if he offe
