Thomas Said So

Post by capt_buzzard »

How sad a thing is human love that ends

with death,sadder when it pitiably tries

to reach out to the dead... Thomas Merton

said these words in No Man is an Island.

He was speaking to me. Oh yes he was.

Me alone. And I damned him for knowing my soul.

I cried in rage at Merton's God..You Bastard.. Why did you take her from me?

But it was Merton who spoke back to me,

not God, Every other man is a piece of myself for I am part

and a member of mankind. Then I knew it wann't rage against God.

I was alone no more. Mankind and God. Thomas said that.
