Think again.

We are numbers in their eyes,
big corporations, big lies.
Money temptation,
eternal suffocation.

They give you a job, you think you are lucky,
you start work, you are not happy.
They are raising their voices on you but don't react,
down with your head, you are a slave, it's a fact.

They offer you some money for your hard work and
you are buying things to forget , but you forget the clock.
They are violating your soul, you go home broken every night
Another living dead human being they have destroyed, goodnight.

So you wake up and getting ready to go and work again,
a vicious circle it is and you have lost something, your brain.
You serve your customers and you are their slave,
for you have to be so, otherwise you are not brave.

And if you are not brave and can't accept this, you will get kicked,
but no worries they will find another soul, you were not picked.
Picked for no reason for you are nothing but a piece of their game,
fool your customers, tear yourself apart and dive in pain.

So you can't do this anymore and you ask for help
but everyone call you lazy, that help they can't accept.
Because you have to make money to live in this world
a piece of paper is holding you or you will die in cold.

So you continue working and earning money by being their mouse
and they give you some free time to get out of this jailhouse.
In that free time you think about your work even if you are trying not to,
your parents never told you that being a slave is the worse flu.

Because your parents were in the same train and couldn't do something
so they worked hard to raise you beautiful , but in reality, they did nothing.
Look at a child, how happy it is during its childhood, the most beautiful years,
you remember all these beautiful times, no duties, no bills, no musts, no tears.

You forgot the clock and now it's late,
Working for others, too much weight.
You are wishing that you would have spent more time for things that matter,
than money, their games, their power, for anything that made your soul scatter.

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
