Of fame and names

Between the door and the world
Two lives, maybe one.
Do you know who you are?
Ordinary people living ordinary life
You are more, so am I.

Come near and listen to its whisper,
What does it say?
It is a shadow
Longing for the unknown,
A world out of grasp.

Of what worth are we for?
For the land you conquer,
And the city you built,
Fame and names are yours.
Alas! These hands are only human.
