Nothing

“Nothing”

written for those who think that there is nothing to love.

 

Nothing never disappoints

because there was never anything to compare it to.

Nothing never disappoints

because there is not anything to gain.

Nothing never disappoints

because there is not anything to break.

 

A clear glass is nothing

because it was never full to begin with.

The outside air is nothing

because it never meant anything more.

A small fruit fly is nothing

because it never intends to harm.

The love for you is nothing

because it never was something.

 

Eat Nothing

because then there will be no problems.

Dream Nothing

because then there will not be nightmares.

Own Nothing

because then there is not anything you need.

Love Nothing

because nothing never disappoints.

 

This poem is about: 
Our world
