by D.H. Lawrence

I am not a mechanism, an assembly of various sections.

And it is not because the mechanism is working wrongly, that I am ill.

I am ill because of wounds to the soul, to the deep emotional self

and the wounds to the soul take a long, long time,

only time can help
and patience, and a certain difficult repentance
long, difficult repentance,

realization of life’s mistake, and
the freeing oneself
from the endless repetition of the mistake which mankind at large has chosen to sanctify.

(from Complete Poems)
