Poetry either strikes at the first glance, or not at all.-
I am trying to understand this shadorma, but I struggle with this one.
You can interpret this Shadorma as you want to. I know the structure is rather strange. It can be read as a question-answer. Or it can be seen as two separate parts of a poem connected to each other. I'll just explain what i mean. When we seek freedom we become unhappy. But when we accept that we are slaves to our circumstances then we are actually free. Why? This is because we learn that we can control our own responses to what's happening, even if we can't actually escape from the world around us. Another meaning could be that we value freedom a lot more when we are actually not free.
