I don’t get the people
And I am called autistic.
They don’t understand me
But they are not called autistic.
They don’t know am I an exception
But I know they take all for granted.
“The unbearable lightness of being”,
Says Milan Kundera, still not true here.
Something is maturing in its own broth
To love the taste of the marinated soup.

Mä en hiffaa jengii
ja ne kutsuu mua himmeeks.
Ei nekään bonjaa mua
mut ei niit pamlata pimeiks.
Ei ne tsennaa ooks mä oikku,
mut mä snaijaan ett ei ne riskaa.
”Olemisen sietämätön keveys”,
skrivas Kundera mut se on skeidaa.
Jotkut keittää vaan omaa soppaa
niinku ett ois jotain mikä synkkää.

About Yelling Rosa

I am retired. In my spare time I read, write, play the guitar and hike. I have published three verse books in Finnish and recorded my songs. You can listen to them on YouTube. I have translated some of my poems on Yelling Rosa's Weblog. I also like to watch movies. Olen kiinnostunut lukemisesta, kirjoittamisesta, kitaransoitosta ja luonnossa vaeltamisesta. Olen julkaissut kolme runokirjaa ja laulujani on äänitteillä. Voit lukea runojani Yelling Rosan kotisivuilta ja kuunnella laulujani YouTubessa. Olen elokuvafriikki.

    Thank you for the Great Soup, and small comment: “Who’s going to lift the tail if not the cat itself.” Is that Finnish or is it Rosa?


  5. Ainakin suomenkielinen teksti on naseva.

    Evocative — I get what you are saying!


  10. Sometimes, how a condition is perceived is more dysfunctional than the condition itself. Well-said!
