Only three steps…

Changed my mind…took the bus…
Changed to subway…escaping the rush…
Only three days in this lonely city…Only to find my self in pity…
I had to make three steps…To avoid the strange webs…

Saw the bag…now back in my mind…sagged…
And the dance I do every day…in the Sun’s ray…
Only three hours to the end…Only to find no one is a friend…
Sometimes I close my eyes…to escape all these lies…

I try to stay awake…I rest not in this bloody lake…
Watching every face to see the truth…forgetting my own youth…
I know the danger is in every thought…Never and not what I brought…
So we can crash and burn…Or we can recapitulate and learn…

Saw the package…pale brown like forgotten old age…
Women with children in their hands… caricature’s starring at their funny lands…Screens in their hands…
Three steps from hell…I heard the subtle bell…Did not feel all that well…
Three steps from the staircase….three steps above the burning rage…

Changed my mind…took whatever I could find…
Changed to be Samaritan…Escaping the raging land…with the hazard in my hand…
Only three steps below…I grabbed high and low…
Only three steps beneath, I read…To many already dead…

Three steps from me…Death made it’s harvest…I see no one is ever free…
The bundle of people I saw…like Jam in a jar…
Three steps under my feet…I saw the deletion…
The end is never full of beauty…Only three steps from being filthy…

Hey Destiny Poets. I live in Denmark about 90 km from Copenhagen and works in Roskilde as a teacher and mentor. I'm probably not like most men of my age and yes I am aged 50 years old. I've tried a lot of jobs without finding what I'm passionate about. Writing, I have always loved and I was probably just 14 years old when I produced my first poem. I have not yet been released some of my poems, but I hope it happens one day. I just finished a novel which I would like to have published, now the time and talent show whether I have the ability to write. Poetry has a special meaning for me and this is where I really feel at home. My life has sometimes been marked by many losses. In the mid eighties, I lost my fiance at the time when the accident happened was pregnant. She lost control of the car and drove herself and her child, who was on his way thereby, to death. It has really made its mark on my life and way of thinking. In the late nineties, I had problems with my back and had to seek other avenues to support myself. I finally decided to enroll at university and was admitted to the humanist line. I read philosophy, science, psychology, journalism and history, but philosophy and psychology is my major interest. I thrive today in the RUC aka Roskilde University just 25 km from Copenhagen. My job is to guide and teach, and it is a job with speed and that gives me a lot again. I have two collections of poems ready to be released, if I can find a publisher who will publish them. I have no children, it would obviously be my lot in life although I have tried, but luck never smiled at me that way. If you have any questions for me so I hope you just ask away all you want, I'll respond as soon as I have read the questions. With kindest regards from Jan Sorensen
