Nobody



Everybody wants to be a somebody.
Nobody knows how to be a nobody.
If ever there is a ‘somebody’
Who knows how to be a nobody
Then that nobody is a real somebody!

If you ever want to be a nobody
Then follow that somebody
Who really is a ‘nobody’.
(Later) Let go of everybody,
Even that somebody who
Already is a nobody.
Eventually you will be
A real nobody.

Venerable Suvanno
From Striving to be A Nobody
