Pantoum of the Antihero

Gets no love the one who doesn’t love.
It’s not Karma, but simple logic.
Even if he does, it’s a sort of odds,
Making the canon candid.

It’s not Karma, but simple logic;
The misanthrope is alone –
Who doesn’t like water, will suffocate in,
Who doesn’t like life, will be perishing in.

The misanthrope is alone.
This is all a matter of nature-
One may hide in a mass like serpent,
Still being poisonous, threatening.

This is all a matter of nature;
The old song of yin and yang-
Darkness isn’t overthrown by brightness,
But they fulfill the scheme of destiny.

The old song of yin and yang-
The side uncursed by goodness
Is the side blessed with senselessness,
Extreme plainness and severity.

The side uncursed by goodness
Fulfills the dark side of the bright –
Without looking for doing the right
Since it’s all self-implemented.

Fulfilling the dark side of the bright,
Giving chance for the light,
And bearing all the dark of the moon,
He may be a hero, the antigone.

Giving chance for the light,
Getting no love while another does,
We – people – serve perfect bad examples
For there’s no hero without Antihero.

Getting no love while another does,
Even if getting that’s out of odds;
Darkness isn’t overthrown by brightness,
But each fulfills a scheme in destiny.

We’ve been and we’ll be gone even as antigone.
