Half (*)

Don’t sit with half-lovers.
Don’t endorse half-friends.
Don’t read for the half-talented.
Don’t live a half life.
Don’t die a half death.

Don’t choose a half solution.
Don’t stand in the middle of the truth.
Don’t dream a half dream.
Don’t hang on a half hope.

If you shut up, shut up till the end.
And if you talked, talk till the end.
Don’t be silent, so that you can speak.
And don’t speak, so that you can be silent.
If you were satisfied, express your gratitude.
Don’t fake a half gratitude.
And if you are unsatisfied, express your disapproval.
Because a half disapproval, is actually an approval.

The half is a life you didn’t live.
It is a word you didn’t say.
A smile you postponed.
A love you couldn’t attain.
A friendship you didn’t know.
This half is what makes you strange even to the closet people around you.
And It is what makes the closest people, strangers for you.

The half is to reach and not to reach.
To work and not to work.
To leave and to arrive.
The half is you, when you are not yourself….Because you didn’t know who you are.
The half is that you don’t know who you are.
And whom you love is not your other half.
It is you in another place at the same time.
Half a drink won’t quench your thirst.
Half a meal won’t satisfy your hunger.
Walking half of the road won’t get you anywhere.
Half of an idea won’t give you a result.
The half is your moment of weakness, but you are not weak!
Because you are not a half human.
You are a human.
You were here to live a life, not to live a half life!

Gibran Khalil Gibran
