Yellow Card

YELLOW CARD*

We cannot understand anything
While our understanding gets in the way.

Stop expecting what you’re expecting.
It’s time to give up.

But who is it that gives up?
Okay I give up.
…..
…..
Some unknown friend came by
Dropping a little yellow card
Through my letterbox today.

On one side were the words
“The words which are written
On the other side are true.”

On the other were the words
“The words which are written
On the other side are false.”
…..
…..
Stop expecting what you’re expecting.
It’s time to give up.

But who is it that gives up?
Okay I give up.

We cannot understand anything
While our understanding gets in the way.

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.
