Second-hand Life

 



Second-hand Life
 
 
More and more every day
 we live a second-hand life.
We take our feelings from the screen
where soap operas flicker,
take from them joy and troubles
which we ought to have ourselves.
 
 
We do not dare to love any longer
 deeply with every fibre of the heart
because we fear the pain
when it will end.
 
 
We do not dare to forgive
or to be kind and generous
because we are afraid
someone could misread
our intentions.
 
 
They there on the screen
 live, fight and suffer for us.
They are the ones
to be blamed or admired
while we are safe
staying away
 watching
 unaffected.

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.
