Thoughts 3

Part of the cluster THOUGHTS.


OF persons arrived at high positions, ceremonies, 
 wealth, scholarships, and the like,
To me, all that those persons have arrived at, sinks  
 away from them, except as it results to their  
 bodies and Souls,
So that often to me they appear gaunt and naked, And often, to me, each one mocks the others, and  
 mocks himself or herself,
And of each one, the core of life, namely happiness, 
 is full of the rotten excrement of maggots,
And often, to me, those men and women pass un- 
 wittingly the true realities of life, and go toward  
 false realities,
And often, to me, they are alive after what custom  
 has served them, but nothing more,
And often, to me, they are sad, hasty, unwaked son- 
 nambules, walking the dusk.
