What is a battle without a victory,
What is victory without a price
What is a prize, without a life
What is life without a purpose?
What is a school without a certificate
What is the certificate, without a knowledge
What is the knowledge, without use
what is the use, without fulfillment?
What is a man without his woman
what is the woman without a child
what is a child without a training
what is the training if not accepted?
What is my book without my pen
what is my pen without writing
what is writing without the readers
what is the reader without interest?
What is pottery without clay,
what is clay without a potter
what is a potter without his skills
What is the skill, without our maker?
