D. H. Lawrence: Healing

I dag tænker jeg på Lawrence's digt 'Healing' -- elsker hengivelsen og rytmen i det.... 


I am not a mechanism, an assmbly of various sections.
And it it 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
and patience, and a certain difficult repentance,
long, difficult repentance, realisation of life’s mistake, and the
               freeing oneself
from the endless repetition of the mistake
which mankind at large has chosen to sanctify.

                           D. H. Lawrence
