When the child was a child,
It was time for these questions:
Why and I me, and why not you?
Why am I here, and why not there?
When did time begin, and where does space end?
Is life under the sun not just a dream?
Is what I see and hear and smell
not just an illusion of a world before the world?
Given the facts of evil and people,
does evil really exist?
How can it be that I, who I am,
didn't exist before I came to be,
and that, someday, I who I am,
will no longer be who I am?
Note: This poem appears in Wim Wender's movie Wings of Desire, and at the time of making this piece I knew only that about the poet, nothing of his politics.
