Gogyohka 9.4.09

the first revelation may be birth
and the next time's passing
but after that
and maybe last
comes how to bear life

For the meaning of revelation is that what is revealed is
true, and must be borne.--James Baldwin, Another Country

This also was inspired by finishing Osamu Dazai's wrenching novel, The Setting Sun.

I like how "bear" can be interpreted as "endure" and/or "bring forth".
