Nazim Hikmet by dselene
Nazim Hikmet…

On Living

Living is no laughing matter:

You must take it seriously.

So much so and to such a degree

that, for example, your hands tied

behind your back,

your back to the wall

or else in a laboratory

in your white coat and safety glasses,

you can die for people –

even for people whose faces you’ve

never seen,

even though you know living

is the most real, most beautiful


I mean, you must take living so


that even at seventy, for example, you’ll

plant olive trees –

and not for your children, either,

but because, although you fear death you

don’t believe it,

because living, I mean, weighs heavier.” 

Nazım Hikmet ~ Yaşamaya Dair ~ On Living (Genco Erkal - Fazıl Say):

My name is Emel. I'm living in Istanbul, Turkey. I always liked drawing and recently took a lesson for two months. I'm drawing more boldly now and I want to try many things. I also like to take photos. I know that hard work is necessary, but maybe I can succeed in time. Thank you very much for your support everyone! :heart:
