Happily ever after?

…have patience with everything unresolved in your heart, and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms, or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.  Perhaps you do carry within you the possibility of creating and forming, as an especially blessed and pure way of living. Take whatever comes with great trust, and as long as it comes out of your will, out of some need of your innermost self, then take it upon yourself,
and don’t hate anything…


 

But with every heartbeat giving you life,

So is death a heartbeat closer.

Are we living to die?

Nay!

Living the questions,

Finding the answers.

But even if we die,

every other day,

some deaths larger than others,

larger than the lives we’ve lived,

until we actually die,

we are still living.


…for the endings we imagine for ourselves are not really endings. An ending is devastating and unsatisfying in its finitude, and the endings we imagine are merely permanent states of ongoing, infinite satisfaction. 

One thought on “Happily ever after?

  1. This is pretty nice. Still hard to understand though. I had to read it around 3 times to begin to understand it, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s to be expected for a poem.

    I noted some of the themes presented arose from your faith, which is also to be expected. Your writing style is pretty unique and I’m sure the more you do it the better you’ll get.
