GLOOM AND CHEER Whatever has an end can't make man glad as when it starts, he thinks about its end. What can this life give man if death waits there and he thinks of its scythe and ruthless fear?
Can most delicious food atone for that and friends at parties help him to forget? Can journeys and success make life less grim as all will pass and death will wait for him?
The only thing that can bring him delight is if man knows that he will stay alive somewhere, somehow and meet the people whom have formed his past and have not tasted doom.
Then life's most buoyant smiles on lips appear as death won't be the doom but complete cheer, and man will live the joy that never ends, which starts just when he knows that life extends. BY JOSEPH ZENIEH ____________
