A Bit of Inspiration…

One of my favourite poems

What it is

What it is
It is nonsense
says Reason
It is what it is
says Love

It is misfortune
says Calculation
it is nothing but pain
says Fear
It is hopeless
says Insight
It is what it is
says Love

It is ridiculous
says Pride
It is frivolous
says Prudence
It is impossible
says Experience
It is what it is
says Love

by Erich Fried (1921-1988)
