Sonnet of Life IX

Sonnet oF Life IX He who comes in first place is always last He who is last is destined to be first He who’s future is ordained, knows his past He who desires for drink, does not thirst He who runs the race, forgot how to walk He who breathes clean air, cannot be smothered He who speaks without thought, forgets to talk He who bears the load, shoulders his brother. He who hears the birds sing, knows no silence He who sees is not afraid of the dark He who loves money, destroys his finance He who labors and toils, enjoys hard work. For the passion of man’s soul is set free Therefore, he can become what is to be.
