I'm a poet,
I have nothing
except words.

I'm a poet,
I don't care about
the world.

Take your money,
take your cars
take your pearls.

I'm a poet,
I don't care about
the world.

Well, yeah, sometimes
I wish I was
someone else.

But I'm a poet,
poets can't escape
their Fate.

Life isn't fair,
death isn't neither,
but at least she tries.

Life may be clever,
life may be smart,
but death is wise.

If you see a smile
on a dead man's face,
don't be surprised.

The best prayer is when you pray in silence,
talking to God like listening to the rain,
when you have this feeling -
when you know that you know
that all the loud prayers are in vain.

If I try hard,
I can get her out of my
mind,

but
even if I try hard
I can't get her out of my
heart.
Peter Balkus Aug 13
Poets think,
poets write,
poets pray.
Poets live
in the bright
yesterday.

Poets shine,
poets don't fall far
from grace,
because poets
have no life
--- to waste.
Peter Balkus Aug 13
My coffee
is never sweet enough.
Even if I put five sugars,
it still tastes awfully.

I once tried ten,
and it didn't work.
I wonder why.

My coffee
is never sweet enough.
I guess that's what happens
when you're fed up with life.

Tomorrow
- it always comes
too early.

Yesterday
- it always goes
too late.

Today
is an impatient 
 waiting,

for silence
after the heavy
rain.
