With his New-Topical-Song ‘Die Schönen Bilder, Die Im Herzen Wohnen – The Beautiful Visions Living In The Heart’ Michel Montecrossa gives a true answer to the question of violence and mass killing as it happened in Texas at the Sutherland Springs church shooting.
Michel Montecrossa says about his New-Topical-Song ’Die Schönen Bilder, Die Im Herzen Wohnen – The Beautiful Visions Living In The Heart’:
“‘The Beautiful Visions Living In The Heart’ is a song I wrote about the ‘love from heaven born’ which alone can save us from becoming killers and evil-doers. I dedicate this song to all victims of the Sutherland Springs church shooting in Texas.”
Things are not easy in my part of the country. High controversy about the re-opening of schools. While some people say schools should re-open, others say they should not. They are protesting against the government and asking for independence for the English-speaking part of the country.
Cameroon is a bi-cultural, bilingual country with the French speaking part in the majority. Over the years this majority has dominated and suppressed the English-speaking minority. The most lucrative positions in the administration have gone only to persons from the French speaking side. Speakers of the Queen’s language feel treated like underlings. Having borne this over the years, they thought the time had come for them to get themselves free.
The fight for freedom has been going on for almost one year with the boycott of school as a major weapon.
Now there is division. Some say the children should be left out of the whole matter. Others say over their dead bodies. Thus schools are re-opening under great tension. In some places there is calm but in others there is outright violence.
How all this proceeds, no one can say. How it ends it’s even harder to tell. Everyone counts only on the mercy of God.
Good morning from Mirapuri, the City of Peace and Futureman in Europe with Michel Montecrossa’s New-Topical-Song ‘Seelenrasur – Sooulshave’ – read the complete song lyrics in this blog post http://wp.me/paKe4-4vp
‘Seelenrasur – Soulshave’ is Michel Montecrossa’s New-Topical-Song in English and German about Ferguson’s Michael Brown and Offenbach’s Tugce Albayrak. Racism, injustice, aggression, violence, extremism are on the rise and take always more lives. With his bilingual New-Topical-Song ‘Seelenrasur – Soulshave’ Michel Montecrossa sends the call for a new spiritual humanism in German and English into the world: “Don’t become the hell of a world without the ‘We’. Rather have the Soulshave and like her be bright and free. Be the soul of love’s moment, show the greatness of the big ‘We’.” In the strengthening of convincing ethical values Michel Montecrossa sees the way out of desperation for the young when he sings: “Feel the Evolver Culture, really know what’s drivin’ the wheel. Violence and racism won’t lead you to the ‘We’. Be heroes of love whose hearts are poundin’ for all.”
Michel Montecrossa about ‘Seelenrasur – Soulshave’:
“I wrote the New-Topical-Song ‘Seelenrasur – Soulshave’ at the time when Ferguson and wide ranges of the USA exploded with anger about racism and the shooting of Michael Brown, and Germany mourned the brutal killing of the 23 years young student girl Tugce Albayrak. My song is dedicated to both of them and to the coming of a new spiritual humanism changing the human world into a better place.”
SEELENRASUR – SOULSHAVE
(On the other side of Ferguson and Tugce – Auf der anderen Seite von Ferguson und Tugce)
Werdet nicht zur Hölle einer Welt ohne das ‘Wir’. / Macht lieber die Seelenrasur und seid hell und frei. / Seid die Seele der Liebeszeit, zeigt die Größe des großen ‘Wir‘.
Don’t become the hell of a world without the ‘We’. / Rather have the Soulshave and like her be bright and free. / Be the soul of love’s moment, show the greatness of the big ‘We’.

A violent or nonviolent world?
Violence and nonviolence;
Two branches of the same tree;
Used like firewood to fuel our fire,
To consume the problems imposed on us;
Which shall we use and which reject?
Which is good and which is bad?
One says non violence; another, violence;
Which you choose, you best know why;
But when nonviolence isn’t working,
Violence doesn’t fold its arms and wait;
It acts before it thinks, rightly or wrongly;
Pushed to the wall, who has a choice?
Else, non violence is the way to go.
Push no one to the wall good people;
Lest they spring on you before you know;
Let’s be friends; and talk like friends;
If we solve our differences like friends,
In love and peace not hate and war,
Through discussion not argument,
Nonviolence over violence will prevail.
What is your take on the quotes that follow? Do you agree or disagree? Do you like or hate it?
“Violence against women is perhaps the most shameful human right’s violation. As long as it continues, we cannot claim to be making real progress towards equality, development and peace.” Koffi Annan when he was Secretary-General of the United Nations.”
According to Mr. Annan, “each of us must accept responsibility for stamping out gender based violence.”
He writes: “Ultimately,it is up to all of us – in our homes, our communities, our nations, our global community – to create a world that is safe for women and girls in which all women have full enjoyment of all human rights.”
We dream of you while in the womb
Seeing you can’t be too soon
We change our diets and start to rest
For you we want the very best
We hold our tummies and start to sing
For you– the best of everything
You take one step and then fall down
We rush to pick you off the ground
To school you go and we are sad
Counting the hours- feeling bad
Keeping busy for a little while
Until we see that funny smile
We blink and suddenly you are grown
Go to College, Oh Please Stay Home
Schooling, working, Living, Love
We pray for blessings from Above
We hold our tummies as you fall
We die first – not you all
We are wailing we are keening
You are gone but we are breathing
With all the sorrow and the pain
Mothers everywhere feel the same
Shot down is down whether right or wrong
This is every Mother’s song
Whether boy or whether girl
Mothers are crying all over the World
End the Violence
Violence against women
Is an abuse of human rights;
Violence against women
Is a shameful act;
Violence against women
Is the work of cowards;
I do not support violence against women;
I denounce violence against women;
What do you say about violence against women;
Add a line or more about
Violence against women.
