Himmel und Hölle - sonnetA Poem by Lilly Negoi
when playing hopscotch on god’s tesserae,
don’t waste the sand on “odd or even” choices -
the thread you’re given by the Moirae
won’t over-stretch. allow the inner voices
of faith and instinct to direct you through,
accept the “lows” the same way as the “highs” -
if to yourself and to the game you’re true,
then you are worthy of the utmost prize:
a life lived to the fullest. when you’re done,
the only thing that matters is your learning
that right and wrong are faces of the one
same coin in which is paid your rightful earning.
from hell to heaven distance can be small -
and the converse is valid for us all.

we are not defined by circumstances but by the way we treat those, Romania
