Friends and foes,
Sit together and speak thy truth.
Perhaps we can settle the swords and the jabs,
“Sure!” spoke Innocence, beautiful, suave creature,
From the depths of naïve knowledge, she said:
“We can reach togetherness,
After all, we are in this together….”
“Really?” says the Skepticism
“It seems that you glide through time learning nothing!
Innocence, you’re just beautiful passing beauty….”
“Passing? No!”, says Innocence,
“I’m always here, for without me how would you love?
How would you hate?”
“Love? Hate?” says Rationality
“After I made a considerable number of records over a long period of time,
I consider that….
It’s all a pile of whims!”
“Maybe,” says the Idealism
“But the man should always create another illusion,
I am not ready to give up on dreams!”
“I am surprised you’re still here, Idealism!
In an official universe,
Where relationships, careers, life…. is predetermined,
How have you not succumbed
To day-by-day unhappiness inertia?” asked Rationality.
“Silence! All kneel! Surrender!” shouted someone from behind,
“Accept my yoke and we will be saved!”
It was Knowledge, demanding to be queen.
They all fell silent,
Innocence became guilty,
Rationality started to bow,
Idealism became aggressive,
Knowledge……did not become queen.
