Living or existing?

“To be or not to be:

That’s the question.”

From Hamlet, by Shakespeare.

From the boarders of time and infinite

Something raises.

Certain voice which proclaims out loud,

Lost in the mind mazes.


It’s hard to hear such voice

With clear precision,

Once the layers of perception

Have blurred our inner vision.


Then, if in a moment of catharsis

You could hear

Clearly enough to understand,

Wisdom would surely appear


Your soul would comprehend

At least

And you would start to

Live, not only exist.
