An Empty Vessel

December 25, 2018 — Leave a comment

Why be jealous of what I have

And what you think I have?

When even I do not know

What it is you see.

Why shadow me every day

And move like me

In every way.

All done with hate

And not much love

Envy is an empty vessel.

If I could help you

I’m sure I would

But you’d have to explain

Without being rude

What I have that you think

You want,

Is really  easy to see

If you let go of the jealousy,

And come and speak to me.

They told me it was beautiful

Out today

But I wouldn’t have known

Sitting curled up in a chair

Behind closed curtains.

With every problem in the world

Prancing like shadows before my eyes.

They say it will be beautiful

Tomorrow

So I’m begging someone will come along

And cut the chain from the chair.

Having rough wind and rain here in Florida.  Heard some desperate croaking and found this little beauty with a baby on its back hanging on for dear life.

The schools were a sham. I panicked. Looking down at the sidewalk.

Waiting to be bitten by a venomous reptile.

They became my neighbors. They withheld their poison until my back was turned.

My little friend pops up from time to time for a nibble.

He has no name. He just sits there and focuses on the job at hand.

He doesn’t need a label. He’s happy just being. Unlabelled but not unhappy.

As we all should be.
