It’s a hot day
we feel a void from the same empty pot.
religion, money, success, they cook poorly in this pot.
what makes a meal– compassion, respect, true connection. when the pot fills, we are fed. no void.
To fear and disrespect ourselves, nature, other life
to never seek out connection
to put our individualistic ideas before our fellow life and respect thereof
is like using a tear dropper to fill a pool that you’d really like to swim in. Efforts will
evaporate, and soon the sun will scorch our dry, empty souls.
