Insobriety and bamboozlement 1
What is love? Asks the thinker
The thinker asks again, what is not love?
He asks, he never gets the answer
The answer of liberation, he seeks.
Early morning we wakes up, waits for the night
The night is too dark, he wants the morning again.
If the wind is too windy, he thinks love is fallacy
Is fallacy a fallacy? He keeps on wondering.
The thinker decides to unthink, but he desires the truth
The truth of untruth, to be decided by the unthinkable realities
When will he stop this madness?
This madness is his new sanity.
Sometimes he scribbles, because scribbling is all too scribbling
Sometimes he imagines himself as the Nietzsche’s madman
One time he shouts, love is dead, we have killed love,
One time he sings love songs dedicating to love.
To confuse is not his forte, but is his forte’s forte
To confuse the mind, he tricks the fingers.
Why I should be a non conformist, he thinks
Why I should not be a non conformist, he rejects.
Liberation is not to chain one in the ideologies of liberation,
Liberation should liberate one from liberation.
If it does not make sense, it is supposed to not make sense
If it is senseless, it is the purpose of a liberated non-non conformist.
We need to annihilate beauty, the thinker concludes
Beauty is oppression, it chains the mind, the thinker concludes.
There is not such a thing as ugly, it is vanity
Ugliness is the invention of virtue hollowness, it is vanity.
Those who seek only their kind; they are useless to humans.
Kind words make a man proud; they are useless to humans.
If you cannot love, so be it.
Love is not a commodity that one may buy, so be it.
Where you seek for your pre determined likeness, you shall perish
Likeness is selfish hoarding of the devil within, you shall perish.
If you cannot sacrifice, you must as well stop thinking of life,
Sacrifice is not a chauvinistic altar; you may as well stop thinking of life.
