Adumbrations of Pessimism


Poesy plus Polemics

Arthur Schopenhauer Sketch by Karl Bauer From Schopenhauer.fr Arthur Schopenhauer
Sketch by Karl Bauer
From Schopenhauer.fr

(Regarding Arthur Schopenhauer)

the world is but illusion
your experience unreal
behaviors objectify will
emphatically suffering
life as irrational product
sufficient of reason but
lacking of genius unblest
save the rarest of men
whose sheer motive of will
drowns in overabundance
of intellect suitably freed
from all place-in-time cause
flooding skillsets enabling
aesthetic contemplation
this singular atheist born
with unique inclination
to kneel before gods both
Vedantic and Christian
