What It Is

I went to a beautiful wedding yesterday where this poem was shared…

What It Is      ( Englisla translation of Was es ist) by Erich Fried

It is nonsense
says reason
It is what it is
says love

It is calamity
says calculation
It is nothing but pain
says fear
It is hopeless
says insight
It is what it is
says love

It is ludicrous
says pride
It is foolish
says caution
It is impossible
says experience
It is what it is
says love.


I hope you find it as refreshing as I did.

I plan to post it on my bathroom mirror!
