Trips Into Life-Izleti U Život


'do you know what it feels like
when you're making a tower made of cards
one look
one move
one breath
removes one from the pack
and everything tumbles down? '

'sounds like an overused metaphor
but still it works'

'what am i gonna do? '

'build more solidly or learn to play'

'and what if i can't do either? '

'take less frequent trips into life'

'znaš li kako je kad gradiš kulu od karata
jedan pogled
jedan pokret
jedan dah
pokrene jednu iz šila
i sve se sruši? '

'zvuči kao oveštala metafora
ali uvije upali'

'šta da radim? '

'gradi čvršće ili nauči da se kartaš'

'a ako ništa d toga ne mogu'

'pravi rjeđe izlete u život'

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
