LULL TO COMFORT YOURSELF
In the secret garden of our soul
Reside the vestiges of our experiences
Held in the beginning of our existence.
It is difficult to find the weft
Which explains the complexity of their influence.
These traces appear without our awareness
In different parts of our body,
In the form of unknown thoughts and sensations
Bothering us and troubling us
With their indiscernible and strange expression…
And we continue walking
In the tortuous roadway of life
Bordered by ambiguities and adversities,
But also, by pauses of happiness and tranquility
So necessary for our survival.
The stress of being and properly appearing,
The impediment of the desire and its realisation,
The absence of personal gratification
And the intense preoccupation to please the other,
Become additional sources of dissatisfaction and discontent.
What to do to feel better?
What to do to suffer less?
Act and sustain!
Feel the present moment
And travel with your dreams.
Brighten up with the good moments
And embrace your solitude when it is necessary.
Lull yourself with your good memories,
And your future plans.
Forgive your weaknesses
And the lack of sensitivity
Of those who surround you.
Entwine in the cradle of your soul
To be comforted
To give pleasure to yourself
To be able to doze
And to be able to sleep well…
The different expressions of poetry
Elegies and poems, both creations of the mind, care only about cadence and rhythm, rhyme and symbolism, sonority and waving.
Aphorisms and poetic reflections human problems try to examine, and possible solutions for them try to provide.
