Never Show Your Tears, Hide; It's a Shame

Akın Çokuğurluel shows the sound of silence while he narrates a story on secrets and horrors in his novel, the winner of Geoturka’s 1st Novel Competition, because you will have the urge to say it when you finish the novel. What? The only and most important thing we even hide from ourselves.

"If you have cried, don’t show your eyes. Hide. It’s a shame. Walk without a hurry. Think. It is the most merciful, exact, private, exposed, defenceless road, you can think of. As Âşık Veysel said: ‘You walk on a long and narrow road.' Your day and night, friend and enemy should mix with one another. Let this road tell and remind you of the rest of your life slightly with a saz. Guess how much time you have, tweedle, worry about your loved ones, what you left and what is left behind. For the unfinished things. Fear death. When your name is written on that cold tomb stone after years, be afraid of not receive blessings and hurting the ones you get blessings from just because they cannot fill your place. Be not afraid of being forgotten. Instead, be afraid of not being forgotten. Be afraid of the ones that stay instead of the ones that go away.”
