The Candle

Life is like a burning candle
The longer it burns
The lesser of it remains
Until we are snuffed out
Into the dark oblivion.

So our movement forward
Is also a backward retreat
And all our accumulated gains
Shall sum up our loss -
Isn't life, for sure, my friend
A bitter-sweet paradox?

[Hata Bildir]
