THE BEAUTY OF NOTHING
"When you have nothing, you won't miss it"
Or so they say.
"When you feel nothing, you can't be hurt"
Or so I hear.
"When you do nothing, you won't get blamed"
Or so they tell me.
"When you are nothing, you won't be missed,"
Which is where I draw the line.
They say a lot.
They know a lot.
But the truth of the matter is
No one knows anything if the universe
is our arbiter:
It is the beauty of nothing.
