Jeg er det dikt

By Inger Hagerup


Jeg er det dikt som ingen skrev
Jeg er det alltid brendt brev
Jeg er den ubetrådte sti
Og tonen uten melodi
Jeg er den stumme leppes bønn
Jeg er en ufødt kvinnes sønn
En streng som ingen hånd har spendt
Et bål som aldri har blitt tent
Vekk meg
Forløs meg
Løft meg opp
Av jord og berg og ånd og kropp
Men intet svarer når jeg ber
jeg er de ting som aldri skjer


Mangå røstar talar

av Karin Boye

Din er som vatten
Din er som regn
när det faller gjennom natten
Sorlar lågt
Sjunker trevande
Långsamt, tveksamt
Kvalfult levande
Sjelver som en grund
bakom alla ljud
Sipprar och silar mot min hud
Sveper seg lent
Slutar meg inne
Fyllar mina öron
med hviskande minne

Jag vil sitta tyst
Där jag inte kan støra dig
Jag vil bo och leva
Der jag kan höra dig
Många røstar talar
Igjennom dom alle
Hör jag bara din
Som et nattregn falla

Du ska tacka

By Karin Boye

Du ska tacka dina gudar,
om de tvingar dig att gå
där du inga fotspår
har att lita på.

Du ska tacka dina gudar,
om de gör all skam till din.
Du får söka tillflykt
lite längre in.

Det som hela världen dömer
reder sig ibland rätt väl.
Fågelfri var mången,
vann sin egen själ.

Den som tvingas ut i vildskog
ser med nyfödd syn på allt,
och han smakar tacksam
livets bröd och salt.

Du ska tacka dina gudar,
när de bryter bort ditt skal.
Verklighet och kärna
blir ditt enda val.


Vær utålmodig menneske!

By Inger Hagerup

Langsom blir allting til
Skapeklsen varer evig
Mørket ble ly og lyset ild
Om mennesket våknet en dag og sa
Jeg vil

Langsomt blir allting til
langsomt seiler vår jord mot en ukjent havn
Ingen kan måle vår framtid og ingen kan gi den navn
Men dette vet vi
At vi er med på å skape, skape det evige livet
Skape det ondt eller godt
Vi vil ikke tape

Vi vil ikke miste den ilden vi engang har fått
Mange var veiene. Det bar galt avsted.
Styrken ble makt, og makten vold. Og mennesker
trampet hverandre ned.
Men alltid var drømmen den aller ytterste virkelighet.
Langsomt blir allting til.
Det haster, det haster. Det kan gå galt igjen.
Hva er det vi vil?

Drømmer og utopier sier de kloke menn,
de som er kalde av hjertet. Hør ikke på dem lenger!

Livet er ikke bare hus og penger
Vi er bestandig på vei
Bestanding et stykke lenger
På vei mot seier eller nederlag
Det haster - Det haster i dag!

Vær utålomodig menneske
Sett dine egne spor
Det gjelder vårt evige korte liv
Det gjelder vår jord


Okay, I sortof got into quite a poetry rush now, so I am adding some that I dont know totally by heart. but still that I love very much........


Ja visst gjør det ondt
By Karin Boye

Ja visst gör det ondt när knoppar brister.
Varför skulle annars våren tveka?
Varför skulle all vår heta längtan
bindas i det frusna bitterbleka?
Höljet var ju knoppen hela vintern.
Vad är det för nytt, som tär och spränger?
Ja visst gör det ont när knoppar brister,
ont för det som växer
och det som stänger.
Ja nog är det svårt när droppar faller.
Skälvande av ängslan tungt de hänger,
klamrar sig vid kvisten, sväller, glider -
tyngden drar dem neråt, hur de klänger.
Svårt at vara ovuss, rädd och delad,
svårt at känna djupet dra och kalla,
ändå sitta kvar och bara darra -
svårt at vilja stanna
och vilja falla.
Då, när det är värst och inget hjälper,
brister som i jubel trädets knoppar,
då, när ingen rädsle längre håller,
faller i ett glitter kvistens droppar,
glömmer at de skrämdes av det nya,
glömmer at de ängslades för färden -
känner en sekund sin största trygghet,
vilar i den tillit
som skapar världen.

I kväll har himlen ingen skrud

By Karin Boye

I kväll har himlen ingen skrud.
Han huttrar naken.
Och aldrig såg jag förr hans blick
så alltför vaken.

Säg, när du somnar in i kväll:
En dag är vunnen.
På vägen där man mister allt
en rast är hunnen.

Så skall du leva dag för dag
och ständigt mista,
och ändå vilja vara kvar
in i det sista.

Så skall du finna livet starkt,
som orkar brinna.
Så skall vart miste bli en vinst --
ty du skall hinna

allt längre mot den livets grund,
som fött dig naken
och bortom alla drömmars svek
är själva saken --

tills i ditt största mistes stund
din själ förbrunnen
går till de släckta ljusens stad.
En dag är vunnen.

I ahve taken the English versions from the nett, and not my head

Many Voices Speak

By Karin Boye

Many Voices Speak.
Yours is like water.
Yours is like rain,
when it falls through the night.
Murmuring deeply,
sinking tentatively,
slow, hesitant,
painfully alive.

Rippling like shallows
behind all sounds,
trickling and dripping
against my skin,
shrouding softly,
closing me in,
filling my ears
with whispering memories.

I want to sit quietly
where I cannot disturb you.
I want to live and dwell
where I can hear you.
Many voices speak.
Through them all
I hear only yours
falling as a night rain

YOU SHALL THANK

By Karin Boye

You shall thank your gods,
if they force you to go
where you have no footprints
to trust to.

You shall thank your gods,
if all shame on you they pin.
You must seek refuge
a little further in.

What the whole world condemns
sometimes manages quite well.
Outlaws were many
who gained their own soul.

He who is forced to wild wood
looks on all with new sight,
and he tastes with gratitude
life's bread and salt.

You shall thank your gods,
when your shell they break.
Reality and kernel
the sole choice you can make.

TONIGHT THE HEAVEN HAS NO GARB

By Karin Boye

Tonight the heaven has no garb.

He shivers naked.
And never saw I yet his gaze
so all-too waking.

Say, when you fall asleep tonight:
A day is won.
On the road where one loses all
a rest's begun.

Then you will live from day to day
and lose, lose fast,
and yet desire still to remain
until the last.

Then you will find life strong,
if you can burn.
Then will each loss become a gain -
for you shall turn

ever further towards that ground of life
that gave you birth,
and beyond all dreams' deceit
the cause is there -

until in the hour of your greatest loss
your soul, burned down,
goes to the place of extinguished lights.
A day is won.

You Should Date An Italian!

You love for old fashioned romance, with an old fashioned guy
An Italian guy is the perfect candidate to be your prince charming
If your head doesn't spin enough, just down another espresso with him
Invest in a motorcycle helmet - and some carb blocker for all that pasta!
Which Foreign Guy Should You Date?

You Are An Iris

You are a unique woman who needs a lot of novelty in her life.
An inspiration seeker, you often have to change scenery to recharge.
You don't deal well with structure or rules. You need to do it your own way.
Your ideal relationships are free and flowing. No one can tie you down.

You Have Your PhD in Men

You understand men almost better than anyone.
You accept that guys are very different, and you read signals well.
Work what you know about men, and your relationships will be blissful.

You Belong in London

A little old fashioned, and a little modern.
A little traditional, and a little bit punk rock.
A unique woman like you needs a city that offers everything.
No wonder you and London will get along so well.

You Are 20% Girly

Um... you're a guy, right? If not, you're the most boyish girl in the world.
And for you, that's probably the ultimate compliment.

You Are Right Brained In Love

Bit of a drama queen
Peacemaker, first to end a fight
Good at thinking up creative dates
Tend to fall in love and get hurt easily
Going with your gut instead of your head
Emphathetic and caring, sometimes to a fault
Good at recognizing patterns in relationships
Been in love many times, perhaps too many to count
Wildly passionate and intense when falling in love
Spontaneous with relationships, going with the flow
Overly visual - can play back past dates like movies in your mind

Men See You As Choosy

Men notice you light years before you notice them
You take a selective approach to dating, and you can afford to be picky
You aren't looking for a quick flirt - but a memorable encounter
It may take men a while to ask you out, but it's worth the wait

Oh My! Every hangovers grandmother has camped inside my brain
But that's okay....Cause today it is the Norwegian national day! Yuuuhuuu!
- The day were its obligatory for ALL norwegians, dead or alive - no matter where they are, to run around waiving their flag and be annoying, rude and drunk.
So, I am right on it!

Also I have noticed that there must be some sort of football-event today.
This suspicion crept slowly upon me more and more after observing several people shouting "BARCA!!" to different sort of things; the back of my neck, trees, the street, the sky, and surprisingly enough - sometimes even to each other.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, why do I alwys decide to party at the weirdest times when nobosy else deos

In school they tell me I need rules. They give me sketches over how I should work with my creativity, guidelines to follow, measures to keep.
Some days ago I read that you now can study reativity at the university. There is this woman with a doctors degree on creativity in Oslo that holds the lectures.

Yesterday I was out on the town, going to a couple of bars. Now and then some guys would comment or shout after me and my friend passing in the street. Often something like "hey baby, I have a present for you over here"(you can imagine what) or "whoa hotsies, where are you going?" or "hey, wanna show me some of that you are hiding under all those clothes?"

I recently spent some time trying to get to know a couple of new people from my class, I must say that 80% of the time, they just talked about rubbish

I see this world, so filled with people that try to make it. They make up rules to make it easier. They do smalltalk because they dare not otherwise. They fall back on shallowness, because, because, I really dont know why.

Sometimes I just want to leave to some Forrest far away and live in a cave by myself
Right now the world scares me.
There are too many people that lies. That leaves you. That stick with you for selfish reasons.
We humans are so full of flaws, it hurts me too look. And looking at myself also hurts, cause I am a part of it. Sometimes life is just too much.

I read this webpage (if somebody wants it translated, just tell me) the other day, that I though it was trying to make up easy solutions for people in pain....BUT, it was so strikingly accurate on describing how I have been feeling the last months.

I am looking for something good and pure. Maybe I can only look within. I just whish I found more of it looking around me as well.

wishing you all a wonderful day out there
hugs

bout The Political Compass

In the introduction, we explained the inadequacies of the traditional left-right line.

If we recognise that this is essentially an economic line it's fine, as far as it goes. We can show, for example, Stalin, Mao Tse Tung and Pol Pot, with their commitment to a totally controlled economy, on the hard left. Socialists like Mahatma Gandhi and Robert Mugabe would occupy a less extreme leftist position. Margaret Thatcher would be well over to the right, but further right still would be someone like that ultimate free marketeer, General Pinochet.
That deals with economics, but the social dimension is also important in politics. That's the one that the mere left-right scale doesn't adequately address. So we've added one, ranging in positions from extreme authoritarian to extreme libertarian.

Both an economic dimension and a social dimension are important factors for a proper political analysis. By adding the social dimension you can show that Stalin was an authoritarian leftist (ie the state is more important than the individual) and that Gandhi, believing in the supreme value of each individual, is a liberal leftist. While the former involves state-imposed arbitary collectivism in the extreme top left, on the extreme bottom left is voluntary collectivism at regional level, with no state involved. Hundreds of such anarchist communities exisited in Spain during the civil war period

You can also put Pinochet, who was prepared to sanction mass killing for the sake of the free market, on the far right as well as in a hardcore authoritarian position. On the non-socialist side you can distinguish someone like Milton Friedman, who is anti-state for fiscal rather than social reasons, from Hitler, who wanted to make the state stronger, even if he wiped out half of humanity in the process.

The chart also makes clear that, despite popular perceptions, the opposite of fascism is not communism but anarchism (ie liberal socialism), and that the opposite of communism ( i.e. an entirely state-planned economy) is neo-liberalism (i.e. extreme deregulated economy).

The usual understanding of anarchism as a left wing ideology does not take into account the neo-liberal "anarchism" championed by the likes of Ayn Rand, Milton Friedman and America's Libertarian Party, which couples law of the jungle right-wing economics with liberal positions on most social issues. Often their libertarian impulses stop short of opposition to strong law and order positions, and are more economic in substance (ie no taxes) so they are not as extremely libertarian as they are extremely right wing. On the other hand, the classical libertarian collectivism of anarcho-syndicalism ( libertarian socialism) belongs in the bottom left hand corner.
In our home page we demolished the myth that authoritarianism is necessarily "right wing", with the examples of Robert Mugabe, Pol Pot and Stalin. Similarly Hitler, on an economic scale, was not an extreme right-winger. His economic policies were broadly Keynesian, and to the left of some of today's Labour parties. If you could get Hitler and Stalin to sit down together and avoid economics, the two diehard authoritarians would find plenty of common ground.
