A Real Friendship Is Built On Trust

I can feel your emotions, you don’t have to explain. 

I can share your thoughts; we are on the same train.

When you smile, I smile. When you cry, I smile.

I am staying strong; even if it hurts, I know it's worthwhile.

The memories we have built together won’t ever vanish,

our friendship is made of these and a friendship can't perish.

To be a friend is to be loyal. It takes years - and thus, many tears

but together we stand strong and eliminate our darkest fears.

I have been there for you; I have seen people coming in and out of your life.

I have suffered while people were hurting you, while we were in strife.

We have always listened to each other, without judging or criticizing.

We gave up on ourselves to understand and feel each other for a better uprising.

I would give up more than I could if I had to save you, my friend.

Because you are a big piece in my life, a piece with no end.

All I want to say is thank you for being there for me,

as a brother, as a friend, I will always make you feel free.

I am your friend and I want the best for you,

not to change who you are like many will try to.

I have spent thirty minutes writing this poem here

for the trust I have for you will never disappear.

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
