The life is throbbing in my veins
is proving its essence
by shaping itself into my words,
moulding my lines …
my strength
forever changing its vision
… its foresight – for itself
yet, always remaining the same
– refuting its being
renaming its shroud
– always
on a pretext to live through
its existence:
its preserver
giving birth to a wholesome
enveloping the essence of the living
naming my presence
– stating/understating it
flowing through
the words
the cries
the screams …
– the laughter
the sorrow
causing all as it is and has to be.
