Like A Candle - Poem by Nizamettin Esen Haymanali

Human life
on this earth
is a candle alone
eating softly itself
between two darknesses
endless and unknown
the one before birth
the other one
after death

    A nice to some extend a little powerful thought on life down here. Many things have been said and written on this, and many, many more will be said and written as time goes on.

    You have your point about life on earth and it could be that it is just that two unknowns, but who knows. Before birth we konw nothing and after death we do not come back ever. So the question about what`s life on earth is up in the air to me.

    Take care now!
