Vết thương là nơi ánh sáng len vào, con không thấy điều ấy hay sao?

July 26, 2018 (TM)

– Trái tim của con nhỏ quá
Nhỏ đến vô hình
Sao Thượng Đế lại trút quá nhiều đau buồn vào trong đó?

nhưng con ơi …
– Vết thương là nơi ánh sáng len vào, con không thấy điều ấy hay sao?

My heart is so small
it’s almost invisible.
How can You place
such big sorrows in it?

but …
The wound is the place where the Light enters you.
(Rumi)

  1. The birds they sang
    At the break of day
    Start again
    I heard them say
    Don’t dwell on what
    Has passed away
    Or what is yet to be
    Yeah the wars they will
    Be fought again
    The holy dove
    She will be caught again
    Bought and sold
    And bought again

    The dove is never free
    Ring the bells (ring the bells) that still can ring
    Forget your perfect offering
    There is a crack in everything (there is a crack in everything)
    That’s how the light gets in

    We asked for signs
    The signs were sent
    The birth betrayed
    The marriage spent
    Yeah the widowhood
    Of every government
    Signs for all to see
    I can’t run no more
    With that lawless crowd
    While the killers in high places
    Say their prayers out loud
    But they’ve summoned, they’ve summoned up
    A thundercloud
    And they’re going to hear from me

    Ring the bells that still can ring
    Forget your perfect offering
    There is a crack, a crack in everything (there is a crack in everything)
    That’s how the light gets in

    You can add up the parts
    You won’t have the sum
    You can strike up the march
    There is no drum
    Every heart, every heart to love will come
    But like a refugee
    Ring the bells that still can ring
    Forget your perfect offering
    There is a crack, a crack in everything (there is a crack in everything)
    That’s how the light gets in

    Anthem (Leonard Cohen)
