Crown Flower

“Wear a crown of flowers on your head, let its roots reach your heart” Unknown

Do you accept a crown, if offered my friend?

Wow! What a thought!

Who does not love wearing a crown and becoming a king or queen?

If you become king or queen of the world one day, what you do?

Are you not excited?

Is it not a fact that this very same world is under your control?

Don’t you feel great?

My friend, have you forgotten the idiom?

“Uneasy is the head that wears the crown”

Have you watched GOT? (Game of Thrones)

If so, you are aware that how difficult it is to retain the crown!

But still, some deserve Crown in these modern days of harshness

I am curious.

Who are they?

“Old people deserve a medal, a medal of existence which crowns their long-term victory against the cruelty of time and the dangers of this chaotic universe!”
Mehmet Murat ildan
