APHORISMS

 

The Earth was born from chaos.

We are still in the developmental stage.

 

They say, we need to change the system.

Is there any system here?!

 

Our native land is in danger.

From the saviors.

 

What we are going through is a superb tragedy,

but we do not feel thinking about literature.

 

Nothing should delay us.

That is why we have not opened a parachute.

 

We have tried all not to sink.

Except to swim.

 

Our destiny would have been our hands,

but we did not want to soil our hands.

 

Hatred cannot explode from us.

It is too deep.

 

How can we be proud of our past,

when each new day is worse than the previous?!

 

Only when there was nothing to see,

we saw it all.

 

We are using our heads.

To break the wall.

 

We can do faster.

If the breaks break.

 

People do not know what they want.

Their will is our command.

 

It breaks up the national unity.
He thinks for himself.

 

We constantly undergo defeats,

as we cannot win all the time.  

 

Considering that who helped us, 

Even God Almighty cannot help us Anymore.  

 

You are either with us

or against yourselves.

 

We should fight to the last man?

Only the last man can say that.

We made many mistakes.

Please arrest those who supported us. 

 

There was no wandering around.
We started going the wrong way right from the beginning.

 

Here, chameleons change their colours
according to the biggest one.

 

The longest way

to go is the way that leads nowhere.

 

You cannot live from love.
That is why one has to do a lot of hating.

 

Casualties were not in vain.
Because the living now envy the dead.

 

Who survives will tell.
If there\'s anyone left to tell.

 

WHEN GOD CREATED A MAN,

HE GAVE UP ANY FURTHER ACT OF CREATION.

 

I BELIEVE IN GOD.

IT’S BETTER THAT WAY FOR BOTH OF US.

 

THE FIRST COMMANDMENT:

DO NOT TRUST ANYONE!

 

IN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS A WORD.

CENSORSHIP CAME IMMEDIATELY AFTER.

 

IF THERE IS GOD,

I BELIEVE IN HIM.

 

MAKING MISTAKES IS THEIR

ONLY HUMAN CHARACTERISTIC.

 

TRUTH IS RELATIVE.

 IT OFTEN DOES NOT CORRESPOND TO THE OFFICIAL STANCE.

 

WE MADE SO MANY MISTAKES.

GET ALL THOSE WHO WERE SUPPORTING US ARRESTED !

 

THOSE WHO ARE NOT WITH US

ARE AGAINST THEMSELVES.

 

PHARAONS LEFT THE PYRAMIDS.

BUT, EVERYWHERE AROUND ARE DESERTS.

 

HE IS UNDER GREAT SUSPICION.

THERE IS NOT ANYTHING DIRTY IN HIS PAST.

 

MEDICAL SCIENCES HAVE ADVANCED

SO MUCH THAT PEOPLE DIE HEALTHY NOW.

 

EVEN THE INNOCENT ARE TRIALED.

ALL PEOPLE ARE EQUAL BEFORE THE LAW.

IF YOU ADMIT EVERYTHING,

YOU WILL KNOW WHY YOU HAVE BEEN ARRESTED.

 

WE ARE ALWAYS THE DEFEATED ONES,

BECAUSE WE CAN NOT ALWAYS WIN.

 

YOU CLAIM THAT TWO PLUS TWO IS FOUR.

WHERE IS YOUR EVIDENCE ?

 

THE MOMENT OF TRUTH HAS COME.

WE HAVE NOTHING BUT MOMENTS FOR TRUTH.

 

IF IT WASN’T FOR THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH,

WE WOULD HEAR THAT THERE IS NO DEMOCRACY NOW.

 

I HAVEN’T GRADUATED FROM PRIMARY SCHOOL.

WE CAN NOT ALL BE DOCTORS OF PHYLOSOPHY.

 

WE HAVE BUILT A BRIDGE.

THE FACT THAT THERE IS NO RIVER HERE IS

A BIG FAILURE OF NATURE.

 

OUR RIVERS ARE CLEAN.

THERE IS SO MUCH SOAP AND SHAMPOO IN THEM.

 

THERE IS ONLY ONE DICTATOR IN A DICTATORSHIP.

IN THIS REGARD , DEMOCRACY IS A BIG STEP AHEAD.

 

WE DO NOT SELL OUR ETHICS, JUSTICE AND HONESTY.

IT IS SO BECAUSE WE CAN NOT AGREE ON THE PRICE.

 

AT PRESENT, WE NEED UNITY MORE THAN EVER. HOWEVER,

NO ONE SHARES MY OPINION.

 

ONLY AFTER THEIR LINKS TO POLITICIANS HAD BEEN REVEALED,

DID THE PUBLIC REALIZE HOW BIG CRIMINALS THEY WERE.

 

Aphorism is closest to life.

It is short.

 

An aphorism is a short thought that

we come to after thinking for long.

 

HE DEALS WITH CRIMINALS, AND HE IS NOT A POLICEMAN. HE DEALS WITH LUNATHICS, AND HE IS NOT A PSYHIATRIST. HE DEALS WITH POLITICIANS, AND HE IS NOT AN ANALYST. HE IS A SATIRIST.

 

HIGHER THE TARGET,

MORE PRECISE THE SATIRIST.

 

WHY I WRITE APHORISMS?

THAT’S BECAUSE I CAN’T REMEMBER THEM.
