Bernhard Pappe

Dark horse in a white shadow

There is a crack in everything
That light comes in
White light floods into a black darkness
Illuminated birds sing songs for Marianne
One of these birds sings songs for Suzanne
The black horse named Suzanne
Gallops away like the wind
The white horse named Marianne
Follows immediately as a storm
A race is on the run
The winner takes it all
but there is no winner
There is no Black anymore
There is no White anymore
Where are all the colours gone
In-between the Black and the White
Life is empty
Without Suzanne and Marianne
Catch the horses
Bring them back
To the life of all human
To your life
Ride the black horse
Ride the white horse
Then you will be the winner
Keep the light in you

Inspired by Anita N. and Leonard C.
