Better late than never!

You may be an industrialist
Or an industrious CEO,
But if you do not know
Who you really are
Then my dear, you’re
Going round and round
In a hollow material zero.

This you will realise
When it’d be time
To close your eyes.

If you want to be your heroine or hero
Before you are physically dead,
Try to know who you really are
A forever present, perpetually ignored star
Shining in the centre of the forehead,
Guiding you like the truest friend.

But when it’d be time
To breathe your last
Alas, cela serait trop tard!
You won’t be in a position
To say dear sister and brother,
That it’s better late than never.
