Life is not a straight line,
It is a circle;
Its end is not where it appears to be.
The line always rotates in a circle
Although, sometimes it does not move
And revolves round itself like a curdled snake,
By shortening its circumference,
Life will get submerged in the centre
And by increasing the curvature,
It will become one with the horizon;
The result will be the same
Whether we do one or the other,
The one is H2O and the other is water.
