He play a saz ( a instrument used by turkish folk singers) and recite selecte verses of Yunus Emre , an ancient poet:



Water-wheel, why do you moan?

For I’ve troubles, I moan.

I fell in love with the lord,

That is why I moan.


My name is troubled water-wheel,

My water flows pure,

Thus, as the Lord wishes,

For I’ve troubles, I moan.


They found me on a mountain,

They broke my arms and wings,

They found me fit for a water-wheel,

For I’ve troubles, I moan.


I’m a tree of a mountain,

Neither sweet, nor bitter,

I’m thankful to the Lord,

For I’ve troubles, I moan.


They cut off my branches,

Destroyed all my order,

Yet, I’m an unwearied poet,

For I’ve troubles, I moan.


I take my water from below,

I turn and pour it high,

See what i suffer from,

For I’ve troubles, I moan.


Yunus, comes and finds no joy here,

The tree will never grow,

No one remains in this mortal world,

For I’ve troubles. I moan.

About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
