And We Depart With Nothing

We come

We roam

And we go

That’s all we know.

 

We come on earth

We roam, we surf

And we depart with nothing

No money, no bitcoin, and no ring.

 

We say good morning

We chat, laugh, and sing

And we slip away with nothing

Without siblings, land, and building.

 

P.S. Translation of “ Et Nous Partons Sans Rien”.
