Explanation - Poem by Dorota Szumilas

”Love explained me everything
Love solved everything
therefore, I do adore this Love
wherever it would find itself”
(Karol Wojtyla)

explained me little
since the sorrow moved away
too many matters
Longing then
would substitute
from common years
that never happened
Failed conversation
”a good word”
here and there
solved me very little!
It had too many
its own problems
yet did explain something!
The magic of our moments together
that never happened
has left my
with no tears or delusion
At last! !

(transl. Annaya Chomczyk)

    The ending of the poem suggests that you know the truth behind love. A fine view. About love, what I have to tell the world is this: - Love cannot be expected unless it is being given. We may claim that we have given love to the world in a sufficient manner but the world need not feel so. If you look at the kind of love that you see around, it will be clear that the world is only expecting love from others and not yet ready to give it out from its own side first. In the case of love, only expectation takes place. Our love is very much conditional. That is, if you love me, I will also love you. If you write to me, then, I will also write to you! We may declare that this is not the situation but if we probe into our heart of hearts, we can find out that our love is very much conditional. Conditional love always gives us disappointment at one point or other. Only unconditional love can bring in all peace and harmony to the world. This is an eternal truth. (Report)Reply
