poor life

Gustaf Munch-Petersen: Naked Human

there are those,

who every night rest on the same branch

and only eat out of the right bowl.

 

there are those,

who every morning sing the same song

and always to the same beloved,

always only to one god.

 

there are those,

who only follow one path over the earth;

they fear only one death

and live only one life.
