Treasure Island

MOHAMMAD SKATI


KNOWLEDGE IS NEEDED


A grain of sand was in a rock that Time did its best to erode it, It was given birth by the successive hitting Of the sea's waves against a hard rock, All these grains of sand were greatly Tiny pieces of that hard rock, If we assemble these grains of sand, then We will get a pretty pumice stone, but We can not have the same hard rock, A grain of sand flies with other grains of sand To shape great dunes in the heart of the desert, but These grains of sand can not be back into hard rocks, Hard rocks beget grains of sand, but Grains of sand can not shape a hard rock, Life is teaching us with great knowledge that There are no perfect things because Perfection is God's, Time and factors of erosion can turn great things or Even great human beings into weaker shapes Like a hard rock into grains of sands and Can turn a strong hero into an old man, A pretty and pregnant cloud can be turned into Drops of rains, so Knowledge is needed To know what's going on around us anytime.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
