The Most Important...... - Poem by Metin Sahin

the plane trees
with their paws like a lion; s
live for a thousand years
the chest-nut trees
live for three thusand years
the cypress-trees are upright for five thousand years
even the poplars live for seven hundred years
in greenery and white
how shoprter we live my brethren
how shorter we live
how shorter
this must be an important problem
is adjusted and equal to the
longevity of the lives of the horses yet
even
we are not equally satisfied with
the cworkld as much as them
most of us
bear burdens heavier than the
burdens
which are carried by the labour-horses

    As these flora do not harm others, these are living for hundreds of years. If we are let to live hundreds of years, we may harm others mercilessly..

    Well written.. I enjoyed reading it..
