The Labyrinth of Denial / El Laberinto de la Negación (count 18)

Am I the One for real?
Am I the One unreal?
a simple magic stone
of depth and consequences
a river bank of confluences
clear sky of concurrences
that shine just like gold
or did I just say an illusion
that was never seen?
maybe I was never told
Instead of a happy ending
what are we pretending?
would it be all our creations
or maybe dark motivations?
where is all the clarity?
where do we go from here?
do we turn to the left
or drown in the right?
straight on there is a light
where darkness awaits me.
and behind there is the rest
where I was undone in unrest
and in the clouds, and in the rain
Who am I? what am I?
the great fire long extincted
where my ashes were put to rest….
¿Soy yo el autentico?
¿Soy Yo el irreal?
una simple piedra mágica
de fondo y consecuencias
orilla de un río de confluencias
cielo limpio de concurrencias
que brilla justo como el oro
o acabo de decir una ilusión
la cual nunca fue vista?
tal vez nunca me dijeron
En lugar del final feliz
¿Qué estamos fingiendo?
¿Sería quizá nuestra creación
o tal vez una oscura motivación?
¿Dónde está toda la claridad?
¿hacia dónde vamos desde aquí?
¿nos regresamos a la izquierda
o nos ahogamos en la derecha?
allá al frente existe una luz
donde la oscuridad me espera.
y detrás está todo lo demás
donde me deshice de la inquietud
y en las nubes, y en la lluvia
¿Quién soy yo? ¿qué soy?
el gran fuego extinto en el tiempo
donde pusieron mis cenizas a descansar….

Note: After a discussion with a friend I decided to write 20 poems (this is count 18) which will take you into a Shamanic journey put down into poetry. These are not teachings nor do I expect the reader to learn anything, but if you do, beware of that gift that you possess and put it to good use…

  1. Yes, yes and yes. You are the one my most beautiful friend who writes words that poke my soul so strong it hurts….

    Extinct, holds the line as long as you like, dear Gavriel,
    or extinguished, if you wish.
