Purgatory

 
 
 
 
 

Purgatory


When I dip
into the ardent waters of truth
my skin stings
reacting with sweat,
my soul is pierced
and comes up with furious struggle
not to be forced to learn
about myself at all.
 
My faults, my sins
I want to keep
buried where they lie
hidden for years
because I now fear
revolt and rebellion.
 
 Staring into the steaming mirror
I detect
shadows on my eyebrow,
shadows on my mood,
shadows of guilt and remorse.
 
Who am I
I wonder
alien to myself,
a stranger, a villain?
 
Eventually giving in to the heat,
to the truth of brutal steaming life
sweating and cursing
I relax into the inevitable.
Slackening I loosen myself
to waves circling
around and through me

In Krollebolles Reich: Märchen von Irene Beddies



Irene Beddies hat in diesem Band ihre Märchen für Jugendliche und Erwachsene zusammengestellt.
Vom Drachen Alka lesen wir, von Feen, Prinzen und Prinzessinnen, von kleinen Wesen, aber auch von Dummlingen und ganz gewöhnlichen Menschen, denen ein wunderlicher Umstand zustößt.
In fernen Ländern begegnen dem Leser Paschas und Maharadschas. Ein Rabe wird sogar zum Rockstar.
Auch der Weihnachtsmann darf in dieser Gesellschaft nicht fehlen.

Mit einer Portion Ironie, aber auch mit Mitgefühl für die Unglücklichen, Verzauberten wird erzählt.
