How many more sufferings are hidden

on the laps of time,

on the corners of life?

How many more unwanted lines

in off-screen and in secret has written

unknown destiny’s Master?

Indeed, we are not the right owners of our days,

occupied on pursuing  threads random thrown

around infamous old a Greek labyrinth.

Really, it is bitter, even ruthless the price

that all of us have been charged to be alive.

But it is true there are some tiny moments,

few minutes, even seconds,

such happy and blessed ones, which are well worth

all the troubles of so broken a human soul.
