When nothing is a good thing

They tell me that
having nothing is
good for the soul
being nothing is different
the art of having nothing is
refreshing
replenishing
it makes you realise
who you are
when you may
count yourself
as possessions
and a figure on paper
that is an accrued
total of your fiscal wealth
the art of having nothing is
an accrued total
of you
of your
accomplishments
of your good deeds
and your bad
it is the thing
you will carry
with you when
the end is near
when in your fear
you realise
that it’s your
vision of yourself
that matters
in the end
not your possessions
not your money
not even the love you see
in the eyes of your children
or even their children
for that matter

it is the art of you
the art of life
the paintings you create
within yourself
the sculpture
you have created
out of you
for you and only
you
the image
you have of
you
is the only you
that matters

It Is You

When nothing is a good thing

Artist's Description

Featured in touched by fire
me thinking about me, talking to myself…
thinking about the point of this thing we call life
and the way that time slows sometimes…
and the abstraction of time can be drawn out to a millenium or can seemingly rush by in an instant.
Oh and thinking about death of course, because it is the flipside of that coin :-)
