Today my soul is troubled...
Inexplicable Anguish...I am sad like a silent mountain; caves
in whose belly are suddenly filled with
floods of tepid, simmering water...
I am troubled like a hot summer wind
that blows violent agonized with heat,
raising the dust of the sands of deserts...
In my heart I have a tumult that beats
like frenzied tornado on a desolate island-
Uprooting every tree of existence...
I am struggling like a fish out of water,
trying helplessly to catch its breath,
to somehow put an end to the torture...
I am burning in Hell-fire; Drowning in
the sea of torment, trying to inundate my soul
with inexplicable anguished thoughts...
Can someone tell me,
What is my ire?
