Dear Mr. Nobody,
you don’t know who I am.
I don’t know who you are
But you wonder who I am, don’t you.
I am nobody, and somebody
just like you.
we are both atoms among atoms
like everyone else
Stars, sprinkled across a vast, deep galaxy
We are humans on Earth
Have you ever wondered, Mr. Nobody,
if we were a mistake?
Every one of us was born on Earth for a reason
To make a difference
To be a difference
Have you ever wondered if life was
That we were just wasting away,
Trying to make the world a better place,
while knowing that the world will sometime end?
Wondered if we should just give up
Have you ever wondered why you were in a comfortable house,
with a family
and all you need
While others starved
unloved and forgotten
in the shadows.
wondered why life is so unfair.
Have you ever wondered if God was real
why He never spoke to us
Wondered why he used to talk to people, and now doesn’t.
Wondered why he lets us suffer
Have you ever wished for more, Mr. Nobody?
More than what you have
more than what you need
Greed viruses us.
The hunger for more.
Do you ever think about the future?
Of course you do.
How long your daily commute’s going to be tomorrow
What your next big project will be
When you’re going to meet up with an old friend
If you’re going to get a new job a couple years from now
If you’re going to move
What you’re life might be like decades from now
Wonder how your kids are going to grow up.
Wonder what college they’ll go to
Wonder what you’re going to do when they’re gone
Wonder when you’re going to die.
Wonder how you’re going to die.
And why, you may be wondering,
why I am writing to you?
You shouldn’t wonder though
Isn’t it obvious
The answer lies before you:
I am writing because I can.
I am writing to make you feel uncomfortable.
I am writing for you to think about the world.
I am writing to
I am writing to make you feel ALIVE.
Think about it, Mr. Nobody.
About these thoughts.
Doesn’t the human mind always ponder these?
The quest to know who you are.
While the whole time,
the answer lies in
Think about it.
Think about it.
