Important Questions | Σημαντικές Ερωτήσεις [?] (poem | ποίημα )

Are most days daze
set astray by daily disarrays?
Too often we seek answers
& forget the most important


Why deny the undeniable sage
inside —
Whole world’s a stage —
But what does that change?

Too often we seek shelter
in tombs cleverly guised
as comfortable rooms &
forget the most important

Out of womb is not the only birth,
& rebirth doesn’t only come after death.

If change shall come
let the first transformation
be within you —
Only then will you escape this comfortable room.

Translation in Greek:

Σημαντικές Ερωτήσεις

Είναι η κάθε σου μέρα γεμάτη σύγχυση και στεναχώρια;
Τάχτηκα ψάχνουμε της απάντησης
και ξεχνάμε την πιο σημαντική


Γιατί να αρνηθείς την
θεότητα μέσα σου;

Πολύ συχνά ψάχνουμε καταφύγιο
μέσα σε τάφοι που μεταμφιέζονται
σαν άνετα δωμάτια και ξεχνάμε την
πιο σημαντική

Απο την μήτρα δεν είναι
η μόνη γέννηση,
Και αναγέννηση δεν έρχεται
μόνο μετά απο το θάνατο.

Και αν έρθει η αλλαγή,
Να αρχίσει πρώτα με εσένα —
Μόνο τότε θα ξεφύγεις απο
αυτό το άνετο δωμάτιο.

As a spoken word poet, she has also had the opportunity to collaborate with numerous musicians across the globe. Currently, Evy is the Founding Editor of Poehemian Press and runs the decade-young poetry website (formerly The Artistic Muse).

She also obtained a Diploma (distinction) in Exercise Nutrition from Shaw Academy four years later. When she's not creating, Evy Zen recharges her batteries by reading her weight in books ("The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho is her personal favorite), going on epic bike rides, meditating to ambient music, and racing super cars behind the safety of her computer or TV screen.
