I Wonder

 I wonder

Why in the midst of hidden truth

We have forgotten the song of love?

I wonder

Why we mourn something that has been dead in our chest?


I wonder

Why between trickles of blood, the naked truth is living?

Why in the thick layers of dawn,

All our stress is sleeping?


I wonder

Why above the dry lakes, the clouds cry with gladness?

Why among the lost happy days

We are searching for the thrill of sadness?
