I keep ...
I keep...
...Playing the same thoughts
Over and over in my mind
...Repeating the same words
But the pages make me blind
...Waiting for an answer
To a question never asked
...Searching for a solution
To a problem from the past
...puzzling to find some logic
Within the chaos of my brain
...Waiting for a chance to a ride
On this constantly racing train
...Recalculating the risks
Of what could happen next
...Replaying of what has happened
Placing everything in a different context
...Thinking about what I could do
Or what I probably should have done
...Fantasizing of what could be
And if somethings could be undone
...Fighting for better times
Learning to become a better man
...Turning the thoughts in my head
From spiraling down to a positive zen
...Looking for happiness to come
But it's better to live day by day
...Trying to live here and now
Cease the day, come what may

You are The Best
You are wonderful
Just say it out loud
You are doing wonderful
Not just to anyone else
You too are an individual
Accept it, come on
When someone says it
It’s cool, right. Thank you
It feels right and fit
Look forward, champion
Don’t look back, keep going
You’re doing outstanding
Stay positive, keep it flowing
Just say it, I beg of you
‘I am doing wonderful’
Hear it, take it in, listen
‘I too am an individual’
I am going to accept it
This really uplifts my spirit
Thank you for the compliment
For this, my life becomes lit
And I am too

Years Passing By
Years Passing By
Since the day you made a choice
Five years have flown past
Last contact I only heard your voice
Unbelievable you were always the enthusiast
A sign, a token I’ve never caught
Fifteen years we made it through
Never could nor would I’ve thought
Of the struggle within you
This summer we could’ve celebrated
Twenty years of our blood brother times
Your body gone, the friendship never outdated
Your love, your wisdom and your wits still chimes
I celebrate your life and your spirit
Forty years old you would’ve become
Most people fear it, I will cheer it
Your tune, our tune I will sing and hum
Our bond, never broken and strong as ever
Fifty years from now, I will still tell our tales
As the memories will last forever
Our stories living on through many trails

Zeg het nou eens hard op
Jij bent echt goed bezig
Niet alleen tegen een ander
Jij bent toch ook aanwezig
Accepteer het nou ook maar
Wanneer een ander het zegt
Dat is fijn toch, dank je wel
Je kan het wel, echt!!!
Kijk vooruit, topper
Draai niet om, doorgaan
Je doet het goed kanjer
Positief blijven voortaan
Zeg het nou eens, toe
Ik ben echt goed bezig
Hoor dat nou eens, luister
Ik ben toch ook aanwezig
Ik ga het gewoon accepteren
Het is fijn om te horen
Bedankt voor het compliment
Hiervoor mag jij,
mij altijd storen

Samen met jou - Together with you
Samen met jou
Samen met jou
Wil ik alle vuren doorstaan
Samen met jou
Wil ik door weer en wind gaan
Samen met jou
Wil ik vechten voor ons tweeën
Samen met jou
Wil ik openstaan voor alle ideeën
Samen met jou
Wil ik spontaan kunnen knuffelen
Samen met jou
Wil ik alle geuren en kleuren besnuffelen
Samen met jou
Is mijn leven een geheel
Samen met jou
Zijn wij ons en als gezin, heel
Samen met jou
Voel ik mij niet zo koud
Samen met jou
Zijn de zoenen van goud
Samen met jou
Loop ik over glas en door het vuur
Samen met jou
Luister ik naar voorbij gaan van elk uur
Samen met jou
Is de lucht blauw en opgeklaard
Samen met jou
Word ik oud en bejaard
Samen met jou
De vrouw van wie ik zoveel hou

Being Heard
Being Heard
Please stop telling me
What I should be doing
Why won't you listen?
And see that I'm trying
Hear my words for once
Can't you see that it hurts?
The struggle inside me
Grows only bigger with your words
What you think is best
Doesn't always do the trick
My own thoughts rule my life
Sucking the blood from my veins like a tick.
I'm done with defending myself
Fuck them for not listening
Always listening to one side
Saying: 'Your problem is just a simple thing'
Apparently most don't see
They also don't want to hear
Certainly don't want to speak about it
Until I'm no longer here.

The Hippo Campus
The Hippo Campus
Once upon a time there was a little seahorse
He wanted to play so he searched for friends
Eventually he found a place called Hippo Campus
He thought nothing about the bigger looking tenants
He swam in and tried to talk to strange looking crowd
But everywhere it shivered and he was pushed back
He tried in all directions to make contact
All he got as a respond was a big shivering attack
One day he found a few smaller creatures willing to play
They played all day, but the big ones said they were too loud
They started shivering and shivering, worse and worse
Then came the day the leader kicked him and his new friends out
Now the little seahorse and his little hippos were free
Yet the mothers were mad, frightened and nervous
They searched and shivered, they couldn't find the little ones
The word reached far and wide to the other Hippo Campus
On that side, they couldn't believe what they heard
They were so afraid of this creature, because they cowed
A seahorse that lu

Berry Tap
Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
Hi I'm a 39,5 year old man from the Netherlands, I'm a father of 2 children a daughter Vera of 12,5 and a son Meallan of 10,5. I have a lovely wife Wendy > :iconwhisje: of 34 and we are married for almost 12,5 years now. I run two groups here on DA as a founder, that is: :iconeddie-the-head-club: and :iconmetal-mascots: :new: and one as a co-founder, that is :icondutch-photographers:

Atm I'm having some lack of inspiration, I'm feeling lazy, so not so very much comes from my fingers.

My crafts in art are multiple, I once liked to draw tribals, now I shoot (macro)photos of nature and write poetry, mostly bringing things under attention for some awareness. Sometimes I make a step to something else, like photo-manips. But only when I feel the need to do so, like when I'm inspired enough, whahaha.

Hope to please my watchers and future watchers once more with some nice work of arts.

How are you all doing?

My life a bit bumpy, but hanging on a rope.

Writing some poetry now and than or just roaming around on DA.

I've entered a contest, prompt or challence here and there.

Latest is  MagicalJoey's Anthology ContestWhy hello there you lovely person. Yes, you! No, not the madly waving person behind you...just you. You have arrived at a very nice place. While we have no unicorns, candy or coffee, we do have a contest! That's right, you've arrived at:

(Idea stolen, kinda, from here: Aero's Anthology Contest! (Deadline April 30!) )
While the idea isn't an original one, I decided that I wanted to host a poetry contest that promotes the writing of poetry. And what better way to do so than by holding an Anthology Contest - I am an aspiring poet who aims to publish an anthology one day, and I am sure that there are many more like me - where you have to write poetry that is specific, packs an impact and is anthology 'worthy'. Thankfully I am not like Mary Poppins in the gif below - for then you wouldn't know what to do would

:) Hoi Berry,
volgens mij ben jij nog het enige aktive lid van Dutch photographers! Ik heb enige mensen een comment geschreven en ze opgeroepen weer foto's toe te voegen op Dutch photographers! Ik heb ook een blog entry geschreven, maar dat is al verlopen, ik wist niet dat dit eerst goed gekeurd moest worden. Laat je even wat van je horen? Ik heb nog wel wat vragen over de groep... Dit is het bericht wat ik rond gestuurd heb!

:) Hallo ...
Ik ben Wiebe Stavast, hier op DA beter bekend als stilleschrei, hobby fotograaf en dichter.  Sinds kort ben ik +lid bij
:icondutch-photographers:. Ik ben dit geworden zodat er iemand is die de ingezonden foto's verwerkt en beoordeeld.
:D Ik roep je dus op om weer foto's toe te voegen bij de Dutch Photographers, zodat de groep weer tot leven komt!
Met vriendelijke groeten: Wiebe
