“Confession” by Rudolf Nilsen (1925)

There is no meaning of life?
You say: We are born and die,
but is there an aim with it all,
an intention with all that we do?

I know a meaning of life.
It is that you do your duty
in big and small to your class ‐
in action, in thought and poem.

It is that you never give way
for promises about laurels and pay,
but defiant and full of hate fight
for justice and peace for your son.

For yourself you have nothing to hope.
The happiness is not for you.
For the future’s generation you shall open
a better and brighter way.

I know a meaning of life.
It is in those nameless’ army
to fight for the working class
with thought and song and rifle.
