Good luck with finding yourself.
It is just watching people
It is just writing
Is it just being alone?
But there are so many people.
Water opens something in me,
Something I did not know was closed.
But now that it is open
It is now I finally understand that
No one can forcefully ever
Close it again
       – This, dear Jane, brings us closer to a revelation
To a halfway epiphany, in the middle
Of our humanity.
By the way, did you ever find the time,
The right moment, to ask your parents:
What does it mean to be human?
