I Cannot Tell

02 Mar I Cannot Tell

I celebrate my birthday thinking about life

Of dreams and aspirations

Of family and relatives

Of friends and foes

Of life and death

Of past and present

Of future and past

What essence is there in this life?

 

I celebrate my birthday thinking about relationships

Of mothers and children

Of brothers and sisters

Of husbands and wives

Of fathers and responsibility

Of nations and its people

Of humanity and races

What essence is there in this life?

 

I celebrate my birthday thinking of jealousy

Of wives and mistresses

Of husbands and paramour

Of step siblings and stepsiblings

Of collegues and bosses

Of cousin and cousin

What essence is there in this life?

 

I celebrate my birthday thinking of afterlife

Of heaven and hell

Of holy and evil

Of life and death

Of freedom and oppression

Of joy and hate

What essence is there in this life?

 

-I cannot tell!
