A Way To Convey

A Way To Convey

written by: Aurora Kastanias


I would like to find a way, to convey
The immensity of a devouring feeling
Slowly eating my entrails as I fail, to unite
My kind in recognition of its nature,

Show them the beauty of their existence
The glory of their strive, to survive, live
In a world of hostilities despite, their fragility
Fabricating shelters gathering in tribes,

Nurturing each other into societies for no man
Alone suffices to evolve, realising they need
One another, they are stronger together,
Reaching the higher planes of thought

Blending intellect and spirituality in quest
Of understanding, apprehend comprehend
Use a mind, mystifyingly capable of engendering
Ideas sparked by creativity, ingenious enough

To materialise them, they fly if they dream to
Breaking limits to discover there are none
Only endless possibilities in Universe infinity,
Hardly conceived by reason but perceived

By spirits bathed in emotions, procreation
Out of baffling love we can’t explain yet experience
Through regeneration care compassion trust
Loyalty and friendship, we are the masters of our lives

If only I could convey, the immensity of this feeling
Slowly eating my entrails as I fail, yet enduring
Pouring all my love upon humanity in recognition
Of its glorious nature, its rarity potential and beauty.

Born from a Greek, British, Ghanaian father and a Persian mother, I grew up in Rome, where my parents fled to during the Iranian Revolution. The passion for the art of writing led me to earn a Baccalaureate in Literature, being ever since influenced by French 17th and 18th century authors.
While studying for my BA in Business Administration, at an American University in Rome, I further got enchanted by 19th century existential authors as well as European ‘absurdism’ and the Theatre of the Absurd.
It was only after my MBA that I started writing more seriously, giving space to my true passions. In recent years I have written two existential novels in Italian. In recent months I have started studing astrophysics and writing poems in english, which finally brings me here.
