I am not a mechanism, an assembly of various sections.
And it is not because the mechanism is working wrongly
that I am ill.
I am ill because of wounds to the soul,
to the deep emotional self
and the wounds to the soul take a long, long time,
only time can help and patience,
and a certain difficult repentance
long difficult repentance, realization of life's mistake,
and the freeing oneself 
from the endless repetition of the mistake
which mankind at large has chosen to sanctify.

--- D.H. Lawrence

I think I'm about to free myself from some of this endless repetition! Another turning point.

  1. That is powerful - you always find such great poems etc. I'm a literary idiot- really need to read more serious stuff!

    Turning points are good - sounds like you're still working though some major things. But I get the feeling from this blog that things are leveling off. So glad.
