This NFT is the first NFT poetry book, which is first created on social media by posting poems on the original photos regularly. Afterwards Anakreon published the first book from this posts. It has been created by bringing together a total of 118 images. All of the poems that have been published on social media were made into a published book with the name of “the Branches of Life” in 2018. The English and Turkish versions of the book can be downloaded on www.anakreon.com.tr. The poems have been posted on social media, mostly on Facebook, with the “Don’t Break The Chain” method, at least one new poem per day between April 2016 / November 2017, with some exceptions. The complete list of the posts shared on the social media accounts can be found below based on the book index with their links. The English translations of the poems can also be found below the links. Therefore, this is also the first bilingual NFT poetry book in the world. If we were to consider the coding language that is used to create this NFT as one language, it consists of a trilingual structure (Turkish, English and the coding language), almost like the "Rosetta Stone". All of the photos in the NFT are originals. The photos with poems on them have been taken by either Anakreon or Mrs. Elvan Güney. The majority of the social media connections are on Facebook. Anakreon’s Facebook account is a social media page that has been online since 2016 and that has 160.000 followers. https://www.facebook.com/anakreontr And Anakreon’s Instagram page has been online since 2016 as well, with 6500 followers. https://www.instagram.com/anakreon_inst/ Further detailed information can be obtained on www.anakreon.com.tr regarding Anakreon’s story. This NFT, Anakreon’s social media accounts and the published book called the Branches of Life have been created by Mustafa Ahmet Baysal, who uses the pen name of Anakreon, who was born in 1978 and who lives in Istanbul.

SHOULD BEGIN WITH MY FAVOURITES

As I learn more

The amount of things

I will discover increases

Unfortunately day by day

I am running out of life

Apparently my time won’t be enough

Should begin with my favourites…

LOVE

Life is yours with all inside

Love is your greatest fortune

The more you love

You become human

The more you share

You become wealthy

And remember that

Love is the only thing that grows when shared

BIRTHDAY

I remember

You were born today

This is a gift for you

Receive it either as an old friend or an ex-love

How ever you like

But I have to share with you now

These lines were written

In the time we were together

While you were sleeping in my arms

In a hotel room

A little drunk a lot in love

Our romance was a calm harbour yet

Before we got away from each other

Our littles and lots were mixed

In our busy lives

You were sleeping on my chest

I was writing the following lines

While one of my hands is in yours

“I am your fingertips that you nibble on

I am your child alarms that you set at night

I am your dream hero that appears in movies

I am your dream of the family that you wish to rebuild

I am your hands always drying

I am your eyes that you want to bring out

I am your honesty that you question

I am your eyelashes that caress my face

I am the tough man’s body lying beside you

I am your crazy poet screaming “Oggi o mai” now and then

I am the wine that you drink

I am the man that you love

And also

I am some memories you want to forget

I am the verses you can’t say

With the tears dried up

In the chorus of lost love songs

I am the fatherhood that I’ve failed

I am your outcast child

I am your extreme reality

I am the one you called and believed that you found

I am your lie that I can’t be”

Now it’s time to share

Forgive me for not reading these to you at that time

If I were enough for reading as well as writing

We might have still been together today

Or we would have been a separation like a slap in the face

I don’t know

After all I can only now send these lines to you

From a little close, a lot far from you

Happy birthday my rose

Let it be happy whomever you are with now

Just be happy

*"Oggi o mai" Italıan: "Today or never"

BUTTERFLY WINGS

My heart is my butterfly wings

Mind where you touch me

(don’t hurt me while trying to love me)

5: BOYALI KUŞ

THE PAINTED BIRD

Your wings are painted as mine

Both of us are painted birds

So we push each other

We believe that we are unpainted

In the world of painted people.

  • “The Painted Bird” is a story in Jerzy Kosinski’s book with the same name. But this story entered literature as the concept of “the Painted Bird” with the meaning that it refers to symbolically. In the story; one of the novel characters catches live birds and releases them after painting them in various colors. The bird flies straight to the other birds as soon as getting released, but it is naturally not aware that it is painted. The bird is not welcomed by the other birds because it is painted. And eventually, it gets killed by the other birds. And the character of the story watches this with joy, and continues to paint the birds that he catches and release them. Here, a reference is made to alienation.

CIRCLE

Everybody creates a world for themselves

Of which they stand in the centre

Of which dreams and disappointments are enough for themselves

Everybody draw a circle around themselves

Of which they are in the centre

Whenever they want to get someone in their circle

They narrow into themselves

If they haven’t broaden their horizons enough

With every new inside and outside

The circle stretches

And ensures its frame with each stretch

And you think you’re never protected

Or always protected

In your own circle

THE BRANCHES OF LIFE

The branches of life

Thin and fragile

You can’t land on the one you want

Whenever you want

Blaming yourself for the things you aren’t able to do

Will get you nowhere

There is only one law of the universe

And it is time…

No matter what you do

You can’t stand up against it

If you can’t afford to grow old

It means that time is already over for you

And if you can’t hold on

One of the branches of life you choose

You should try again and again

Remember that the measure of existence

Is trying

Holding on and being held on

Standing up against the darkness

That wants to swallow you

And the branches of life

Hope, sorrow, love…

With or without people

You are on the branches of life

As you breathe

As you learn new things in every sorrow

As you rise higher with every hope

As you know yourself

And choose what suits you best

Don’t say that you haven’t found anything

Things you’ve learned have always been there

If you can’t find them

Try to create them

Because creating is the greatest power of the world

And say that you are at this game

SAY YOU ARE AT THIS GAME!

SEIZING THE DAY

How much sorrow is experienced

How much hurry

No one knows

But you think everybody knows

You’re ashamed.

You think the world will stop

And people will stop

When they read your eyes

You’re wrong.

Days pass

From hurry to sorrow

From hope to joy

You think you can catch the days further along the road

And do what you want

But your life goes by

Breath by breath day by day

After all of your hurry

You are left with your regrets

Can you seize the day for me?

GET UP KID

These songs never end

This sorrow never stops

Get up kid!

We have much to do.

MATURITY

Now I know better

What it means to be mature

Maturity means

To be able to predict the things that will occur

and to be able to stand all the happenings

and to feel sorrow from every prediction

to take a lesson from every sorrow

11: PİŞMANLIK

REGRET

Going

Just going

Without knowing where

Showing that you’re hurt

Actually going unwillingly

Having your mind on the things left behind

Despite knowing that you will regret

Wishing someone would say to stop

Going slowly

Hoping that someone would call now or soon

But turning back

It is not possible to turn back now

Yet no one has called you

That light you have expected to see has never turned on

Now turn back if you can

You are more miserable for not having been called back

You’d better stay there

Turning back in another spring

So it seems that going isn’t good

To go

It seems that no one should go

Sulking like a child

THEN SEPARATIONS FOLLOW

The sun rises late on bad days

Sorrows cause men to make mistakes

Then separations follow…

It is often difficult to understand the others

Roads don’t end by passing

Sounds of engines

Then separations follow…

You can’t escape from yourself

Even though you go far away

But the roads

Then separations follow.

MY SHADOW

My hopes are like a candle light in the dark

The only thing I see

Is my shadow

I keep walking expecting it’s ahead

Without knowing what I’d like to find

TAKING THE CHANCE

What benefit did I get

By avoiding people

Considering them

They tried to build walls inside my brain

Taking the chance of thinking

THE EVENING PRIMROSE FLOWER

Some endings

Also mean nice beginnings

I have learned this from the evening primrose flower

Which blooms with the last lights of the day.

INNOCENT IGNORANCE

Man realizes how little he knows

As he reads and learns more

And he realizes he has seen very few things

As he travels around the world

Therefore

The man who reads and travels little

Thinks that he knows everything

So don’t be taken in by the arrogance of man who knows little

And don’t forget that

Ignorance is only dangerous when it is brave

Otherwise innocent ignorance is like a clean slate

THE TRUE FACE OF THE WORLD

I looked forward

I saw backward

I looked backward

I saw forward

World, which one is your true face

I couldn’t realize

TOUCHES

Some have small hands but great hearts

They are the ones

Who build the world

By small careful touches and great expectations

Some have huge hands but tiny hearts

They are the ones

Who destroy the world

By rough and greedy touches

HURRIED LONELINESS

Is loneliness felt breathlessly?

Why all the hurry?

Is it possible to be alone in a crowd?

For whom the crowds are?

CROWDED LONELINESS

In the middle of my loneliness

It is a new thing I think about

I am like a city of which roads have been run out

But no, this can’t be called as loneliness

It is a lack of human specific to this era.

We are the alone ones of the crowds

Who are special in their own way

We are the alone ones of the crowds

Who are afraid of the crowds of the cities that make us alone

But who still search for a fellow for themselves

Who believe that they will find themselves all the way in them

Who hope a lot

But are also mistaken a lot

And who is left alone after all.

LONELINESS FEAR

I am like the crickets that have missed August

In a hurry not to be late at every moment

Anxious about the loneliness of their future

In every lonely morning they wake up.

INURED LONELINESS

He hears the nature in the nook

Listens to the night in his bed

His eyes never look

But always see

His lonely face in the mirror

DRY LONELINESS

It rains outside at nights

Roads become wet and cold

But you are at home dressed and dry

You weave your loneliness like a lace inside

Preferring to be outside wet and cold

With someone

OPEN YOUR WİNDOW

Don’t get stuck in loneliness

Effortless and depressed

Don’t make your heart sink quietly

Open your window and go out into the sunlight

The world is not what you know

Don’t drown in the darkness

Look at the world

See, there are things to love

World doesn’t have only dark face

Open your window

See those green trees

Colourful flowers

Joyful birds

Cute cats

Look at the wideness of the sea

See the point that the vast embraces the horizon

Think that

You can’t catch the horizon even though you’re there

Realize that

There is always a new horizon in your life

Wherever you go

Look at the sprouted sapling

Love its youth

Light the fire of hope

When the darkness came

Burn with the dream of the future

See the true face of the life

It is not all a fight

Open your window

Look and see

Life is not what you know

NOT FAR AWAY

Nothing is far away

Distances are symbolic.

It’s the desires that matter

It’s wishing to fall in love or to be successful

That matters.

It’s being able to love despite everything that matters

What keeps men alive is being able to hope

Being able to hold on and to be hold.

Being able to stand against the darkness that wants to swallow you

Without thinking the borders

Knowing the one who stands in your way is yourself.

And living a full life

It’s being able to put an end

With the same pleasure you have as you begin a new sentence

Knowing that there is a full stop at the end of every sentence

That matters.

MEMORIES

Memories which are full of shame

Full of pride

Memories which are full of sins

Full of good deeds

Amorous memories

Lonely memories

Sad memories

Happy memories

False memories

Grave memories

Pity memories

Memories which I always want to remember

But I don’t even want to think about

Memories which become older the more I think

Memories which I remember in a different sense every time

Memories which I seek solace in

Or engraved in my mind like a lesson

Memories which are very special in every sense

Memories which will be with me until my last moment like a loyal friend

Memories

Memories…

JUST LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE

He pretends to be vigilant just like everybody else

But he is as naïve as the others

He believes in some things just like everybody else

But he also never feels like believing in some things like the others.

Sometimes he also falls in love just like everybody else,

Believing that he will never break up.

But when time is up

He also breaks up like the others.

Sometimes he gets angry just like everybody else,

But he also thinks himself patient like the others.

He is kind to children just like everybody else,

But he can’t stand the crying of a child like the others.

He thinks himself generous just like everybody else

But he is also stingy as much as the others.

There are more cases to be written.

Some of are too shameful to be mentioned.

As a result he is just like everybody else.

But somehow

He always thinks himself a little special

As much as the others.

DEEP INSIDE ME

I am tired again

Calm again

Hopeless again

Inconsistent again

Lost again

Bored again

It’s difficult to change

Challenges are everywhere

Every time

It’s difficult to understand

It’s difficult to be understood

It’s difficult to be loved

While it’s easy to love

Searching is useless

It’s impossible to find

Everything is intentional

Only I am aimless

I am like the blind

But I see what no one wants to see

I am like the deaf

But I hear what no one hears

I am always cold

While I want to warm the others up

I am just like everybody in the crowds

My fellow is loneliness

Chaos and silence again…

Silence that has no dimension

Deep inside me.

THE LIVING DEAD

Am I tired

Or am I daunted?

Have my feelings abandoned me

Or have I abandoned them?

I am like a walking dead

Are the things I do

Evidence of my living

Or are my dead feelings

Evidence of my death?

EXTRAORDINARY

Ordinary people also have extraordinary dreams

Everybody believes they are extraordinary

Really, they are…

But hopes and fears are always same actually

Just like every one else

No matter they believe they are extraordinary

Extraordinary

Extra

Ordinary

If you leave “extra” out

You will have “ordinary” left

Ordinary hands

That can’t shake each other

That can’t cover themselves fully

Lonely hands

Mighty of much

But incapable of lots of things

They will bury you with those hands at last

Before you accomplish many things

Just like every one else.

YEARS FLYING BY

You consider yourself as a bird

You think that you can fly

You never give up

Even you know that you can’t fly

You flail about reaching a different point in life

That’s the way life is

It passes quickly

Like the bird that you wish to be

You can’t fly

But years fly by.

WEALTH & POVERTY

I know what poverty is

I also know the wealth

As much as I know

Wealth in the poverty

And poverty in the wealth

HUMAN

I cared about the human

For they were humans

I also cared about the unhuman

For I was human

But they didn’t return the favour every time

BEING A CLIFF

There are cliffs all around us

Our loved ones are with us

I don’t fear from falling off a cliff

But becoming a cliff.

MY FRIENDS

I have friends

They are all like me

We come together at some nights

We get thinner as we talk

We cut our ropes as we get thinner

We become who we wish to be at those times

Coarse and rough when we’re alone

We all get thinner when we’re together.

AS IF WE WILL NEVER DIE

Everybody is a trouble for each other

We couldn’t fit into this great world

Everything we have is for the others

What is left for us is a grave

We pretend to dig it for the others

As if we will never die

NECESSARY

If there are more things I will see

Is it necessary to forget what I have seen before?

If I was able to love again

Is it necessary to be the last?

If living simply means happiness

Is it necessary to be short-sighted?

Is it necessary to know all necessities

And make the best of everything?

HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE LIVING?

Do things increase the more they are increased?

And decrease the more they are decreased?

How do you compare

What the man feels

With what actually occurs?

How do you explain a feeling without exaggeration?

How can you come back to earth without pain?

While truths vary from one to another,

How do you describe living

Without thinking the much as little

And the little as much?

WATCHING EACH OTHER WITH THE MOON

I have sat in the night

Watching the moon

I know the moon is also watching me

We are watching each other like making love

On the other hand the world keeps spinning

Somehow the moon spins at the same speed as well

Just like my drunken mind

ESCAPE TO THE BLUE

Cities are one room on the top of the other

Where we try to breathe

Only escape is to the blue around here

To the sea or to the sky

But we can’t escape no matter how much we want to

Our part is living crazily

AGE 37

When you are at the age of 37

It means that you have passed the half of the way

You have less than half now

And you’re getting late for a makeup exam

It means that your account has accumulated

With the things you gave and received

It means that you should make better decisions

With your current awareness.

WHAT WE EXPECTED AND WHAT WE GOT

Although we didn’t get what we expected

At the end of the roads that we set off on searching

Searching is still nice

As long as the life whispers hope to us.

Someone is always the one who keeps waiting

He hopes for the one who waits him patiently

Someone is always the one who waits

He hopes for the one who is worth the waiting.

LIFE STRUGGLE

Maybe the present moment

Will never become clear

But time will still go by

Even you want to stand against the time

Every moment will bring a new breath

And you will grow old with each breath

If you turn back and look

Your experiences and memories

Your wins and losses

All of your life will lie behind you like a story

And after all one day you will say it is over

But it won’t be over

This struggle will last forever

Whether you exist or not.

MANIFESTO

My less is more

My more is less in my heart

It is less as I give

And it is more as I get

As long as my heart

Struggles to exist.

DILEMMA

You dislike everybody

Mostly yourself

You want to change

And protect yourself as well

To protect yourself

Against yourself

If you shoot yourself

You carry your corpse on your back

If there must be a fight deep inside you

The most honest one should win

Because life is only happy honestly.

I am neither yours

I belong to me

I am both a servant

And a master

Of my own.

THE DEAD END WITHIN ME

If I miss the things I’ve never experienced

That’s because of the things I experienced…

If I try to explain the things I can’t understand

That’s because they were never discussed

If I can’t expect the things I want to hope

That’s because I can’t find my way in the dead ends within me

But even so I can smile

THE STATES OF THE HAPPY AND THE SAD

The state of the happy

The happiness inside him overflowed

It doesn’t fit into his smile no more

He wanted to give some to the others

In order to embrace all his joy

The state of the sad

The sorrow grew in his eyes

He couldn’t keep it inside of himself

He wanted to open his heart

In order to split his suffering

JOURNEY

Neither near nor far

How far did you go in life?

It seems that

There isn’t such a thing as near

No matter how close I get

I realized when I couldn’t be close

There isn’t also such a thing as far

I realized when I couldn’t get enough

Even though she was with me

It seems that

Distances are symbolic

If there is a distance covered

It is towards man’s own heart.

DEPARTURE

You want to come back

If you are far away

But you want to go away from here

Yet you can’t know

What is near or far

You just go

Leaving behind something within you

Tracing your own steps

Chasing after your life

Hoping to come back with each departure

And hoping to go back with each return

You just go

By living…

ANONYMOUS LIFE

Where does this road go?

Your home?

Or to a foreign land?

Is your journey for coming back

Or for leaving?

Where is your home actually?

Where do you belong?

To which city?

To which people?

Or is this an anonymous life?

Sort of that everybody has?

No matter how special you think yourself

Where the only special thing is left on your way

Where you actually head toward your inside

With your departures and returns

Always searching something

Without knowing what you search

Where you move forward.

THE DENSE BOOK

We didn’t show those flowers

That we kept for ourselves

So that they would never wither

Our sighs when we were alone

Were like our footsteps in the abandoned streets

Our plain naked bodies

Were like abandoned cities.

When I can’t hold her hand

The one I write to but I can’t reach

IN THE JUNGLE OF CONCRETE

In a winter night of a distant jungle

It is frosting to the bodies of trees

It is frosting to my hands here because of loneliness

I wish I were a tree in that jungle

I wish I would have frozen there

But I wish there were thousands of souls around me

Of which branches touched my branches

And which knew the pain and the hope inside me

Here I am in the most abundant one among the jungles

But the trees’ branches don’t touch each other

What would I do

However I am still waiting with my arms open

Maybe someone

Some people

Some day

THE KID INSIDE ME

What is close to me today

Except the kid playing in front of me?

Neither brawl nor trouble and sorrow

Nor searching

Who is close to me now

Except that kid who can be happy easily

Even I am far away from myself

That kid is closer to me than myself

He is a friend of the kid inside me

Gather all of your joy together for me

My seared wounds will be closed up with you

Burn me

It will be my rescue.

BEING SILENT TO YOU

And your silence was in my voice

Before I kept silent to you.

My silence is always to your soul

Your soul where I’d like to flow in forever.

As an unforgettable memory from you

Even you are no longer with me

A night of curses

Someone in the night

Loneliness in him

Death in loneliness

Emptiness in death

Where there is neither tomorrow nor yesterday

Which always remains in the same moment

Present time

No one has caught the present time

Present time has gone by

Who it was

It laughed and

Said: “Certainly, I am not you.”

FORBIDDEN CORNERS

It will be a lie

If I say that has happened

It will be a lie

If I say that has been told

It will be a lie

If I say that has been understood

But there is a truth in the lie

That is only inside us

That remains secrets only for us

No one in my life

Has ever existed so much for me

And has been so non-existent at the same time

No one in my life

Has ever been so close to me

And so far away from me at the same time

No one in my life

Has ever been so right

And so wrong person for me at the same time

No one in my life

I have never desired as much

And I have kept away from anyone as much at the same time

I have never felt myself so brave in my life

And so coward at the same time

I have never to express anything so much in my life

And also to hide it as much at the same time

Now my love is both much and little

Whatever I say

I am in the indescribable size of the emotions

In the place where the far and near are one

My hands are toing and froing

Once they reached to you

Then came back to me

I have always waited for you

In the forbidden corners in my dream

In my dilemma

But you never even came there

Yet you have sat straight ahead of me

Smiling at me

While I was waiting for you

But you only go away every night

On your beautiful feet

You go away

Leaving me behind staring at you

You go away

I feel like crying after you

I have a mind to say “Don’t go”

But you go away

You go away smiling

Like calling me afterwards

I feel like I should follow you

You go away

Putting my heart in your pocket

Desperately…

As if you never know

You go away

Making my heart sink

You go away…

Go away

Please go away now

NEW BEGINNINGS

I am turning the pages slowly

Just like the days go by

My pen finds a blank in pages

Just like meeting a new person

My pen continues to write till the last blank is filled

Later come new beginnings

Just like the life

To our brush

"Anakreon" is the poet's pseudonym and the real Anakreon was an antique Anatolian bard who lived in the 6th century B.C. Anakreon, born in Teos (İzmir/Turkey), is just one of the names that were brought up in these lands but are beginning to be forgotten with time, just like the many other ancient Anatolian bards. The poet aims to keep the memories of the ancient bards alive by referring to the unprotected values ​​when he chose the pen name of Anakreon. The poet has been writing poems for over 20 years. He has adopted a plain and brief expression that is far from being concerned with I mage, and that is focused on the meaning, and he tells the search of people of his time for meaning, the dilemmas of the city people who are alone in the crowds, the ephemerality of the relationships of our days, the changing moods, and the desires and love in a plain language and sometimes by using dialectical elements. .
