Being & Nothingness


If you want me to be
I will just be.
If you want me not to be
I still shall be.
Oh my redeemer, nothing can change the life
Even the elemental force of your love
In motion,
Creation is essentially not the fact.
Being or nothingness,
Is motion,
But not the fact or a virtue.
Regret for the gleaning days.
Louts are everywhere.
I want to be with you
But desolate tree is in nothingness.
Not being.
Retribution is a slapstick
Words are the true friends
If they let me be.
Grace is an evil
In motion
Not creation
Production
Not creation but motion.
Chapel of sinners is empty with dust
No sinners
But in motion of reality in production
So let me be
Just be…

    I think this is meant as a parody on the abstract language of philosophers, sometimes going overboard in their seriousness about being and nothingness.
    I enjoyed the poem as such (Report) Reply

    TO LIVE LIFE KING SIZE AND TO FEEL AND ENJOY ITS MOMENTS IS TO BE!
    NOT A PASSIVE EXISTENCE BUT AN ACTIVE INTELLECTUAL AND THOUGHTFUL EXISTENCE! FOR YOUR POEM 10!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
