Beauty contest

It is all a game
About fame
It is our duty
To look “past” beauty
One day we love and adore
The other day no more
Because they have scars
Their heart put behind bars
We now only feel pity
Leave them in a pile of shitty

Imagine 7.5 billion people in line
And a jury would define
What your beauty is worth
On this magnificent Earth
You do not have the right size?
You can not win a beauty prize
You could always have an injection
To match a picture of perfection
But when you fall out “of tune”
You can not receive a fortune
I believe it is a disgrace
To put people out-of-place

What happens when you have cancer?:
When you lose your breast(s)?
You go through (a) life test(s),
What about the rest?
All your days are “messed”
You cope, but are so stressed
You need your care to be the best
You want to curl up in a safe nest
And the beauty contest?
Is not of any interest!

I will say it in my own way:
I see beauty every day
From Europe to Africa
Form Asia to America
I see it on the corner of every street
I see it in the people who I meet

Spring is in the air

I can tell
It is the smell
In my view
It is something new

A feeling of beauty
Without any duty
The air seems cleaner
The grass greener

The grey becomes whiter
Faces brighter
The clouds passed away
The sun came out to play

Spring is in the air!
It is very rare
Still early in the year
People enjoying a beer

Or a nice glass of wine
The feeling is just fine
People using their bike
Others taking a hike

I wouldn’t want to miss
A couple sharing a kiss: )
All the worries will fade
New promises are made

Enjoying every moment in time
Words just flow into a rhyme
No feeling of any harm
This moment makes me feel calm

This feeling I spread as far as I can
To every woman, to every man!



Love everyday!

On the “day of Valentine”
You may say: “You are mine”!
This is your special way
To share your Love on this day

Are you shy and you don’t dare?
Today you share your “fantasy affair”
This day we are all in “Love”
But is that enough?

What about tomorrow?
Do we share the sorrow?
When we are in the dark
Do we look for the Love spark?

My Love will be there the day after
To share the tears and the laughter
I want the whole world to know
For Love I will vow, I bow!

It is not only about you and me
I think we can all agree
That Love is the key
For all of us to become free

I would Love to send a Valentine’s card
To touch every single heart
“In Love” we play our own special part
To share, to be brave,  and to get smart

A Child

I say:
“I pray”

For a small Child
Pure and mild
That her operation
Creates a new situation

For her to fight
To shine her light
Far and bright

Her parents care
Their love to share
A lifetime long
For her to become strong

For your attention
I want to mention
Without any tension:

Every Child of Earth’s creation
Deserves a stable foundation
And a love life expectation
In every Nation!

The soul

The soul
Can be “whole”
What you feel
No one can ‘steal”

The brain is complex
We need to flex
Not to stare blind
And stay behind

What I state:
“Our brain we overestimate”
It sometimes puts us on the brink
To over-think

We feel a lot of pressure
It then becomes a stressor
I believe the soul is the guide
We need to find the song deep inside

It will show you your path
It feels like a warm bath
We have become unaware
But it has always been there

When your soul has found its way
The brain will follow and play
Together in a brand new song
That is the place where we belong

Mom, where is my hamster…?

Once upon a time we had  two hamsters.
You know the same old story: “Mom, please
can I have hamsters”!
“I promise I will look after them”!
(I must confess, we have had them all:
Hamsters, rabbits, 
Guinea pigs, dogs etc.).
And of course, mom would give in!
So my husband built a lovely “Ajax house”
(We live in the Netherlands, you MUST have
heard from our Ajax soccer team: ))
Anyway, these sweet little hamsters do their
workouts at night, when we decide to sleep!
Each night we would hear their treadwheel
Go round and round and round……

One day I decided, we had enough and the little
fellows moved to the garage.
You can imagine, by then, the real interest in
the little creators had already disappeared.
And of course mom was the one looking after them.
But….. We did not only keep hamsters in the garage…
also our car!
On a good day (well actually on a bad day)
One little hamster escaped, we couldn’t find it any where!

Now I must admit, I did see something very flat and furry
on the garage floor, but I didn’t put one and one together
straight away..
After a while I took a closer look. There was a tiny
little carpet, on the garage floor, ouch!
I didn’t dare tell my daughter.
After a few months. I confessed …

If you have a pet
You also need a vet
No matter big or small
As a mom you are always on call
But when you have a very “flat” pet
You are too late for the vet: ((

A new Goal

We are like a soccer team
We are all very keen
To be “THE STAR”
Known from a far

We are also quite competitive
While everything is really relative
Millions of dollars pass the bank accounts
While for MANY people around the world only counts:

“How on earth to survive another day”?
They all have a dream so “far” away
So tired of their everyday fights
They also would love to be in “THE SPOTLIGHTS”:

All the brave people, their names seen
On “a world-wide big screen”
We should give them a standing ovation
To show them our true appreciation.

While the soccer team play their parts
We need to think about ALL the dear hearts
Instead of giving competition so much attention
We could focus on a new potential

Sports and music gives us so much pleasure
But do we always want to “measure”
Who is the very best?
Life shouldn’t be so stressed

We can also just play for fun
So other people do not need to run
That is what we need (for) to strive
That ALL the people get a better life

We could do something grand
Hold each others hand
Together we CAN play a beautiful role
and kick the ball “in a brand new goal”!!!

(I know the millions of dollars do no go
go to (for example) a soccer player themselves,
but I just want to try to understand,
why some people are worth millions
of dollars and millions of people
are worth????)



Political Zoo

I honestly have no clue
What to do
What is true
In this Political Zoo

When the elephant trumps
The whole world jumps
All the media, like hyena’s they react
We observe this all as a fact

Words are mixed
Sentences are fixed
I see it in our own political “Artis” Zoo
People walk around like numbness gnu’s

Or we act like bamboon’s afraid, of catching flees
From chimpanzees in other trees
In Politics the lion wants to catch its pray
When the “victim” has gone astray

People on the streets act like little deer
On alert because of the fear
Watch the ostrich put its head in the sand
Not knowing how this Political mess will end

As an “Observer” it is all quite a show
To see how the other one gets the next blow
And because I just do not know
At the moment I let all the news go…..


My body IS my vehicle

I sit in my own driver’s seat
Putting my feet
On the accelerator pedal
Deserving my personal medal

Daring to go full gear
No more tears, no more fear
Grabbing the steering wheel in my hands
Driving through unknown lands

Opening the roof
A sense of freedom as proof
The sound of the radio
Turning from mono into stereo

Freeing myself from “my safety belt”
A feeling I have never felt!
The wheels turning full speed
My life taking a new lead

Following the flow of my river
Looking in the rear mirror
Smiling at what I left behind
I no longer mind

Releasing the old reflection
Daring to take a new direction
I FEEL my new “car”
Becoming my “movie star”

The power of the “car” getting stronger
The “Beetle” I need no longer
The brand new “Porsche” becoming me
Loving EVERYTHING I do to be free

This new feeling of freedom
All coming from my own wisdom
What I do want to mention
I look after my own “heart” engine!

(Don’t worry I am not leaving my dear husband ; ))|
(And no, I am NOT having  plastic surgery : )
It is a feeling inside
