Logos


I'll speak a little:

I have been
Raped
I have been beaten
And killed
Yet still I am here
And therefore you are as well.

I am the river you crawled from
And I am never the same
And neither are you.

Will your body be the same
In the prison of its soul?

How much must you hate me?

91


Since mindfulness of everything,
Is the foundation of Being,
To speak the truth of one’s own being,
And to preserve the knowledge we all share
Serves all Being. 

Just as clear Law
Upholds the Nation with greater strength.
Of all the shapings of the law,
The sole source is the principle
Which helps us decide what gives

True mindfulness its victory.

-Heraclitus
