“Nothing”

______________________

1.

Non is freer than one who

has got nothing to lose!

This is easy!

This is doable!

Let us rid of everything that we have!

Let us rid of everything that we are!

Let us rid even of that very tune of hope,

and even of our desire,

to vanish

from this existence!

And let us henceforth walk

this garden of life

with no more fire and smoke!

For non is freer,

also,

than one who no longer

loves or hates!

 

2.

It’s over!

The one that you love

Is gone!

All that remains is nothing

But this moment

Of knowing

That nothing remains.

All that once was

Is for ever lost.

Even this moment of knowing

Passes.

And everything,

Absolutely everything,

Will pass.

And what will at the end remain

Is naught,

Not even a moment

Of knowing

That nothing remains!

Then,

Everything,

Absolutely everything,

Is already

Lost!

Do not bring back the one I love!

For it’s over!

The one that loves

Is gone,

And is finally

Truly

Free.

 

3.

It is rare

To find a one-word answer!

It is even more rare

To find the same

Heart-felt

One-word answer

To three very important questions:

What do i have?

What do i owe?

What do i want?

. . .

“Nothing!”
