Soliloquy


When one is the thief in the run
The other is servant of the law

When one always lives in gutter
The other looks down to below

When one only knows how to hate
The other only wants to please his Lord

When one doesn't believe the world
The other doesn't trust the sinner

When one touched by merciful salvation
The other granted an unexpected compassion

When one ashamed for his crime
The other starts to doubt his faith

When one offered a chance to freedom
The other can't come back to once he belong

When one swears for a new beginning
The other decides to end his life

When one is raised from hell
The other is fallen from heaven

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Based on Valjean's soliloquy and Javert's suicide from Les Miserables musical
If you listen to them, they have the same melody in expressing their turmoil feeling
But in the end the choice they made is very different

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
