Life and Death | A Poem by El Sane Ken Silencer

Whenever I think about life,
I remember nothing but death
whenever I remember death
I think about nothing but life…

Life is life…
Life is about living
and life is also about dying

Death is death…
It is he who is alive that will die
and it is he who will die that’s alive

Not life created in nimiety
That’s why death takes to eternity
They are created for each of them…

When there is life
There will be death
And when there’s death
There has existed life.
