活着

一个人知道自己为什么而活,就可以忍受任何一种生活。-尼采

前天刚读完马尔克斯的短篇小说集《世上最美的溺水者》,喜欢书里最后一个故事《埃伦蒂拉与残忍的祖母》最后一句话:渴望自由的女孩,什么都可以抛弃。埃伦蒂拉终于摆脱了脚下的铁链,抛下了替她杀死残酷祖母的情人尤利西斯,头也不回跑向远方。当祖母赚钱机器的奴隶,成为妓女后,她终于在那一刻摆脱了心灵和身体的束缚,为了自己而活。

你在为了什么而活?你正在忍受什么样的生活。


Early Sunday morning,
By the sound of the bell
I can tell the day’s going to be some kind of nightmare.
I walk you to the station
With your suitcase in my hands;

All is well just as long as the lights are on
And no one asks you.
It’s like you said:
Sometimes you pretend

And sometimes you just forget
As pages are turned over.
But some lines remain in your mind

Through the test of time
To carve their way into your old goodbyes.

And maybe I am guilty for the things you’ve left undone,
I don’t know,
Maybe I am the scratch on your knee not healing.

When your mother gave you away
You just couldn’t say a word,
Welcome home,
Now the world looks new to you

But it turns faster,

Way much faster
Like you said:
Sometimes you pretend
And sometimes you just forget
As pages are turned over.
But some lines remain in your mind

Through the test of time
To carve their way into your old goodbyes.
