this beautiful tragedy

this beautiful tragedy
we call life
that tears us open
and breaks our hearts
this unstoppable dream
that wakes us up
in the dark night
and torments our deluded mind
you have me on my knees
caught between prayer
and defeat

this life is like
discovering a mine of jewels
riches beyond belief
only to turn and see
the entrance and exit
to the mine
have collapsed
and all the beauty
and the riches
you have found
cannot go anywhere…

we are in a world
where opposites
sit happily side by side
where beauty and tragedy
are good friends
but this world
torments us
with its paradox

kaviji says
‘only the one who knows himself
can tolerate the delusion 
because he knows he is
not of this world.’
