The Tree by Robert Mazzei

The Tree

stand up straight evolved son

overwhelm the quandary of the tree

knowledge and life can’t collide

torn by the wish for lording and knowing

the forefathers have killed and abused

filled the emptiness of the peoples with stale reasons

injured the tired mothers, highest and best

love makes life and knowledge sacred

go beyond the dual illusion, keep off the destiny of the gloomy tyrants

no need to be linked, conscience wants no masters

even though we’ll know of differentiated and multiple spaces

we shall go on stemming, thinking not to own eternity

no creation is possible to us, nature never reverts

her power breaks free and she is a driving force

death kills not, life itself ends us

as she is continuously called to mutation by her solemn progenitress

and while changing, she is life once again

the energy that divides the bodies looks to be black, yet not empty

and its force and supremacy are certain

freedom is the great divider

animal nature and blood are naturally true

but pneuma and psyche can freely address to falsity

yet, not the brutal instinct, not the vegetative life will ever poison the free reason

peace is the highest among all forerunners of harmony

universal virtue, bearer of splendor

force ceases to be the measure of all connections

good is the sense of direction, and good and love are uniquely the same ultra-substance.

    Man! We have a poet here!!


Bob Mazzei, born 1964. He lives in the UK, Spain and Italy due to his profession as an economic analyst and a studious of social sciences. Thanks to his frequent business travels in various countries, he has managed to get in touch with different cultures and appreciate the enormous wealth human kind is provided with. Convinced advocate of the free human community, he hopes that sooner or later the human beings will get rid of the inhuman system of production that creates inequality, legitimates the dominant classes to rule over the subjugated, and forces us all into slavery. Eager reader of poetry and literature since a young boy. Preferred authors are: Greek and Latin Classics, William Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, Percy B. Shelley, William B. Yeats, William Wordsworth, Pablo Neruda, Charlotte Bronte, Alfonsina Storni, and more contemporary novelists and authors. He publishes his poems at in English and in Italian. Very fond of movies, rock and roll, visual arts, and humor.
