Gedicht over je lichaam en je ziel en over zielenpijn
“I am not a mechanism, an assembly of various sections.
And it is not because the mechanism is working wrongly
that I am ill.
I am ill because of wounds to the soul, to the deep emotional self.
And the wounds to the soul take a long, long rim, only
time can help.
And patience, and an certain difficult repentance.
Long difficult repentance, realization of life’s mistake, and
the freeing oneself
From the endless repetition of the mistake
which mankind at large has chosen to sanctify”.
D.H. Lawrence, England
