My Insignificance – a poem

My Insignificance a poem


The Sun rises
every morning in the east
but not for me alone!

Gods have vanished
from the earth long long ago – far from mankind
but not just because of me they’re gone!

Scholars are born
and so are the fools every day
but no bills to me are shown!

To many a battle
I have been with my sword and shield
but some are lost and some won!

Why and what do I boast?
My insignificance should be the mirror.
