Who are you?

In the darkness and the drizzle
As the breeze brushed by
Sitting in the shadow of his image
In that silence, he asked
Who are you?

I am nobody, my heart muttered
Searching each corner of my being
For an answer, I stared blankly
At his dark image that was ready
To laugh at my insignificance

My failure, my nothingness, my helplessness
The life that I lead into obscurity each day
Being nothing and nobody
Ignorant of the world and the life
Waiting anxiously for the final moment

If you are

If you are born, my dear
Make sure you choose a rich home
For, if you have wealth, my dear
People will befriend you

If you speak, my dear
Make sure you speak
What others want to hear, dear
So that you remain their friend

If you do something, dear
Make sure you do
What others want you to do, dear
That you will be called good

If you want to live, dear
Make sure you live
The way that others want, dear
Otherwise it will be impossible to live

If you are born, dear
Be ready for the worst
Because the world is kind only to their kind!

Life stared back at her

She was walking together with life
Hand in hand step to step
Suddenly Life moved ahead
And looked back at her and stared
Asking her many questions
For which she had no answer

She stayed still, listening
To what life had to say
Her feet felt heavy
Unable to move
She stared into eternity
