Gott Gib Mir Gelassenheit-The Spooky Season


Gott Gib Mir Gelassenheit-orginal digital artwork by Kai Hogan

Take note before reading: Gott Gib Mir Gelassenheit means God Give Me Serenity

The forest is foggy

As if it is concealing something from me

I clasp the cross around my neck

Yet there is no God here

Screams echo in the distance

They are quiet but this makes them even more haunting

The forest silences everything

Even the purest manifestation of human agony

As I get closer to the screams

I begin to feel forsaken

Suddenly a German phrase emerges in my mind

Gott Gib Mir Gelassenheit

I whisper as I approach a face worse than death itself
