Language of eyes

Is it too much head and too little heart?
Probably not the other way around.
Where gratitude remains in the dark
and humility never shows itself
dreams come up, maybe even doubts
everyone wants to stroke Aladdin’s magic lamp.
But because there is fear in everyone
some paths remain undiscovered
and that which is on the tongue
can’t get out right away to win.
So we often remain in silence
about all the big and the small problems
we travel across seas,
learn languages without ending
but only the language of the eyes
remains the heart’s true legend.
