Biography of Tan Pratonix

Almost all the 90 poems or so were written in my youth, when I was 17-19 years old. Thereafter the Muse died - or rather, let's say, I killed the Muse. I kept the old diary in which these poems were written and thought that these offerings from the early '70s would be enjoyed by friends in Poemhunter. I am happy that they have delighted quite a few.

A Question To Ponder

Pray, what is life
If full of strife,
If man must live
To maim and kill,
If sorrow, pain
And hate must reign,
If love is dead,
If war must spread,
If peace is gone
(All forlorn) ,
If faith and hope
And charity
And grace and truth
And joy must be
Just a dream,
A memory?

[Hata Bildir]
