Jan Hauck (June 1,1978)
I Am II
Since I am nothing of myself, I am you,
I become you and become one,
I become someone by you, through you,
In my dreamless sleep I am still nobody.
So I sleep often, no pressure to be,
And when I dream, I am an object,
With a dreamt body and a dreamt conscience,
But no consciousness, I simply am.
I create myself through you but for you,
The nothing, the nobody deserves no grave,
And I will not be going home, no rest,
Just be, just anybody else but me.
