Knowing Life - Poem by Osvaldo Roman Cerda

Only those high above
Know what keeps me alive
They, He, or She will give me hints
To ponder and wonder on this world

Wondering if it’s the sweet melody of death
Or the boisterous sound of ecstasy
Pondering if I should enjoy the seven sins
Or defy the seven virtues

Pondering if that pugnacious partner is the true love
Or that peaceable lover is the wrong one
Wondering if not seeking guidance will be the path
Or getting the advice to my death

To ponder all life can be wrong
To wonder all life can be right
It is all a matter of knowing your cryptic life
