'Death changes nothing but the masks that cover our faces.' Here, is another quote for you from the great poet Kahlil Gibran. It doesn't make easy reading. But then, that's hardly the purpose. Poetry should provoke us. Make us question. Cause us to think. And in that respect at least, should we not have a similar expectation of life? Are we just here to enjoy the ice-cream and keep an eye on the TV soap operas? You are now being challenged by someone or something. Go beyond your initial reaction, there is something to learn.
