Understanding – a poem

May 3, 2017 - 08:41 -- Admin


I do not understand Marx
In all his volumes
I do not understand Hegel
Lukacs loses me
Totally some might say

And yet I know the struggle
Class against class
Them and us
The value that is exploitation

Enough of sly references!
Our side is my essence
A man of emotions,
Of guesses at life
Watering the strife
To negate the hate
And blossom the love

I can read
And begin to understand
But I can feel
And in that I am woman
And I am man
I am me, I am you
And then I will understand
