      Poetry Submission: Life is a Riddle by Nosson Kohn

      Life is a Riddle
      by Nosson Kohn

      Life is a Riddle,
      who can figure it out?
      better know the secret,
      don't be in doubt

      That which seems sweet
      turns out to be bitter,
      you only find out in the end
      once its too late

      That which is feared most of all-
      death is its name
      turns out to be
      -just life re-birthing-
      in a higher plane
      Letting go of what you want
      is the only way to get it,
      to improve your performance,
      stop thinking about it.

      To make the most of time,
      loose track of it.
      To avoid worrying about the future,
      focus on the present moment

      The way to the pleasant life
      is through hard work,
      those who destroy their desires
      experience endless pleasure.
