Egia Bat Esateagatik - Gabriel Aresti



meanwhile, speaking of speaking in tongues (and remembering that when irreverence gets too irreverent, is becomes serious... and vice versa), back in my head (and my web surfing), I bring you yet another Basque poem, dude...

EGIA BAT ESATEAGATIK
Gabriel Aresti, 1963

Egia bat esateagatik,
alabak
hil behar bazaizkit,
andrea
bortxatu behar badidate,
etxea
lurrarekin
berdindu behar bazait;
Egia bat esateagatik,
ebaki behar badidate
nik eskribitzen
dudan
eskua,
nik kantatzen
dudan
mihina;
Egia bat esateagatik,
nire izena
kenduko badute
euskal literaturaren
urrezko
orrietatik,
inoiz,
inola,
inun
eznaiz
isilduko.


many might call that harsh, but then, history has been harsh more than a few times... since the dawn of human time people have been afraid of their shadows (and many other things and non-things) and of course, words... sometimes we give so much power to words that we forget where the power comes from (we give so much power to words) and seem to act as though the words have some power over us, in some cases, as if we are helpless to do anything and feel threatened by the words... I can only imagine why we do it (if you find me doing it, please laugh and point this out to me... or maybe point it out and then laugh, in case I'm deep in defense posture or something)... I mean, if you care and all...

of course giving words meaning is a large part of the fun or excitement of life (take vows, promises, blessings, or curses, for instance)... and there are many words I have empowered in my head and life that give me great pleasure and passion for life... here, in my myspace blog, I play with words... sometimes I find words that I wish to empower in my life... sometimes I find words that are meaningless fun for the moment... and that's just my interpretation... you create your own... for instance, this translation of the second Basque poem this entry was built around:

IF FOR TELLING THE TRUTH...
Gabriel Aresti, 1963

If for telling the truth
they must kill
my daughters,
rape my wife,
pull down
the house
where I live;
if for telling the truth
they must cut
off the hand
I write with,
the tongue
I sing with;
if for telling the truth
they must rub
out my name
from the golden pages
of Basque literature,
never in any way
nor in any place
will they be able
to make me shut up.

Translation: Toni Strubell
Original version: EGIA BAT ESATEAGATIK


I always do my best to remember that there are at least two relatively polar, and often many sides to everything... for someone who believes in truth and asks, what good is life without truth, this poem might have very different meaning than it does for someone who's life is dominated by fear... I've rarely met anyone who's life was not dominated by fear and dearly wish I forged more permanent bonds with those few, but then, the natural freedom of living without fear allows us to accept the drift of lives and the smile that comes from what will be, will be... those who see dichotomy may begin to understand, those who see contradiction may not, but if I write these words for you I do not know this, for I do not know who you are or even if you are out there... I write these words for me because I am the only one here and if, by chance, you come along and find some worth in reading here, then I am not alone...

I hope you find a way to express yourself and occupy your alone time that brings you joy and fulfillment... and I hope your chosen way does not include trying to change others ways unless they ask for help in changing their ways... cuz from my perspective, that's the way to survive, not just to get a little crazy, not just to live and let live (or live and let die), but to focus on creating the best life you can live by doing what you do and letting others do the same...

we interrupt these seemingly mindless dots for a word from (or at least about our sponsor (hmmm, sponsor?... what's the opposite of sponsor?)... anyway, now, as ado-less as possible, the word for you or andrew)...

you know that box to the right on the dland entry page called recent public entries?... what do the asterisks mean?... and the bold?...
