THE THESIS OF IRONY

by rado gatchalian

 

inhale

no more - fix your eyes

to path no one can see

 

do not bring

the candles - enlightened by tears

of the past

 

do not murmur

untold tales - conceived

by gods of the earth

 

go straight

to the door of immortality

and experience

 

the inexperienced

wonders of life and death

of joy and pain

 

do not cross the bridge, then,

that gives life to death,

gives joy to pain

 

the irony creates sin,

mind starts to think: whether

man's life is man's own pain!

 

walk, now, without cane

care not what people say -

believe in yourself: abandon your fear!

 

suffer no more -

follow the heart that speaks,

listen to voice - inner and deep

 

now, inhale the breath of life

and see in your eyes the way

where all people aspire to find

 

a place where tears and laughter,

pain and glory, sex and celibacy,

exist as One

 

- a place,

which in the first place,

no one can explain

 

this is the irony unspeakable:

exist and cease

be free and become slave

 

this is the irony inevitable:

now - you begin

tomorrow - you will end
