MEANING OF EXISTENCE / Poem by Ibrahim Honjo

 
Poem by Ibrahim Honjo
 
 
MEANING OF EXISTENCE
 
In the midst of universe of restlessness
Great
From eternity to eternity
Black hole like soot
Watches us
Controls us
This is the source of our power
Coming from blackness
From depth
From height
This is the source of our smile
And cheerfulness
 
This is source of our joy
And pain
This is the source of our sorrow
This is the source of meaning
And absurdity of life
 
We sprouted from that light
From that blackness
And we will return to her
Through the black hole
Deep into blackness
 
She needs us
The same way we need her
She feeds us right now
And one day we will feed her
We complement each other
We need somebody
And somebody needs us
That is the sense of existence
