Bom Yeoreum Gaeul Gyeoul Geurigo Bom

Cambridge, England. May 2009

Master, there is a stone on my back.
Please take it off

Does it torment you?

Yes, Master

Didn't you also do it to the fish?

Yes, Master

Didn't you also do it to the frog?

Yes, Master

Didn't you also do it to the snake?

Yes, Master

Stand up!
Walk around!

I can't walk, it's too heavy

How do you think the fish,
the frog and the snake endured it?

It was wrong to do it

Go and find all the animals
and release them from the stones
Then I will release you too

But if any of the animals, the fish,
the frog or the snake is dead,
you will carry the stone in your heart
for the rest of your life

Bologna, Lebanon. July 2009

When I can't see you,
I go insane
What is wrong with me?

Lust awakens the desire to possess.
And that awakens the intent to murder

Syria. September 2009

Leave alone, Master.

Can you not see that I am suffering?

What causes you to suffer?

My only sin was to love
I wanted nothing except her


She went with another man

Ah, that was it

How can that be?
She said that she'd love only me

And then?

I couldn't bear it any more

Didn't you know beforehand
how the world of men is?

Sometimes we have to
let go of things we like
What you like,
others will also like!
Young Fool!
Though you can so easily kill,
you yourself cannot be easily killed

Carve out all of
these characters with the knife
And while you cut out each one,
drive out the anger from your heart
