Life's Brief Candle
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time
,And all our yesterays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death.
Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more; it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Have you found meaning in life?
Do you have something in your life worth dying for, worth living for?
Or are you merely passing each day, meaninglessly, aimlessly...
waiting for your life's candle to shimmer away into the darkness...
If you haven't found your love, your passion, the reason for your existence...don't fret.
Remember that we got Allah..pray for him.He knows the best for us.
There's always hikmah behind everything that we had gone through.
Just do our best and tawakal..and remember our special power that connect us and make us close to Allah which is doa.Don't never ever under estimate the power of doa.
I really love what shakespeare did with this poem.It's really touch me deeply.He expressed the meaning of life through his point of view as the "persona".He describes the sorrowful side of his life in this poem(not his life actually but the character's life which is Macbeth).Macbeth really feel lonely and frustrated after the death of his beloved wife, lady Macbeth.He throw away all his feeling in this poem and said that his life resemble the brief candle..meaningless and short.He feels that every seconds of his life are dedicated to death and there is no point to being alive.
As a human,i really mesmerized by the briliant shakespear for his beautiful poem.But as a muslim i totally disagree with the messages of this poem.Our life are all dedicated to the only creator Allah s.w.t. "life but a walking shadow,a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage,and then is heard no more.."...from this line the persona describe him as an actor on the stage or real world that act like an idiot and then being forget by people after death.I don't deny that we live as an actor on this world that being directed by our God,and the script is al-quran and sunnah.Everyone play their role till the last breath.The differences are we got aim and objective in life which is the heaven and there's already guidelines for us given by god.We as a humble servant must obey to him as our appreciation to all the nikmat he gave to us.So jadilah hamba yg bersyukur..
"Maka berdzikirlah kamu kepada aku,pasti aku mengingat kamu dan bersyukurlah kepada aku, janganlah kamu ingkar kepada-ku"(al-baqarah(2):152)
