#poem at night: inner conflict


August 2016

Blimey, this poem is 20 years old! Lately, I think a lot about the fact how long I am in this world and wonder if I have changed that much. My body certainly has. My mind? Not so much. My life has always been characterised by different inner conflicts. This poem describes some of them:

Inner conflict 14.01.1996

Expressing inner conflict.
How do you do that?
Denying the hidden child
with the existing adult.
Without killing the child?

Burying the feeling
of being alive
with a dead intellect.
Without losing life?


striking down the
developing poem
with necessary work.
Without letting go of the words?

Inner conflict
how do I
express it?
