The Misery of being anybody

Wednesday, November 11, 2009


Surrounded by No-bodys,
He strives to be a Somebody;
And when he enters the league of Somebody(s),
He desires to be the One big, cool daddy;
Eventually, his yearning is complete.
Now, he searches for the truth,
He misses being a Somebody,
Even misses being a Nobody.

Power is powerful,
It took over him.
Choking like a rabbit in a sack,
He knows there ain't turning back,
Helpless, he has no more power to gain.
Everything in vain.
He was a Somebody,
Who died like everybody.
Immortality ain't real;
It is a bloody myth, a lie,
Many things, many times, always end with a sigh.

 

PS
He never really was fully content, ever. Sad... So are many of us which is also, shall I say, sad...

Immortality in the literal sense isn't real, but people CAN be immortal - through memories they make, through their achievements, through their acts of kindness...

Are we related by any chance? These things don't just happen. You have to be. Impossible that you thought those things without being related. :)
