Keine halben Sachen

Do not love half lovers

Do not entertain half friends

Do not indulge in works
of the half talented

Do not live half a life and
do not die a half death

If you choose silence,
then be silent

When you speak,
do so until you are finished

Do not silence yourself to say

And do not speak to be silent

If you accept,
then express it bluntly

Do not mask it

If you refuse then be clear
about it for an ambiguous
refusal is but a weak

Do not accept half a solution

Do not believe half truths

Do not dream half a dream

Do not fantasize about
half hopes

Half a drink will
not quench your thirst

Half a meal will not
satiate your hunger

Half the way will get you no where

Half an idea will bear you no results

Your other half is not the one you love

It is you in another time yet
in the same space

It is you when you are not

Half a life is a life you didn’t live,

A word you have not said

A smile you postponed

A love you have not had

A friendship you did not know

To reach and not arrive

Work and not work

Attend only to be absent

What makes you a stranger to
them closest to you
and they strangers to you

The half is a mere moment of inability
but you are able for you are not half a being

You are a whole that exists to
live a life not half a life

Khalil Gibran, Quelle (Deutsche Übersetzung)
