If you thing that nothing is just that, nothing, should think again...

Nothing is…

…to build with gold bricks a fence to keep out poverty.
…to hide the surplus of milk from starving little children.
…to make weapons when the world has a lack of plows.
…to believe God is deaf because we don’t pray a sincere prayer.

Nothing is what happens when I write the President
Nothing is what happens when I express my discontent
Nothing is what nothing does it's quite the human habit
So I suggest if you see something to go ahead and grab it

Oh my...this totally reminds me of song from Sound of Music:

Nothing comes from nothing
Nothing ever could
So somewhere in my youth or childhood
I must have done something good

Love the song...and love your four-line poem, Georg!
Blessings and Love - Micke

Politicians should listen to the first three lines and re-think what they are doing. All the lines offer so much insight. The fourth line hit me in a really personal way. Thank you for saying so much about 'nothing.' Remarkable.

God bless you,

Those four lines are definately not NOTHING. Everything you write is so deep and powerful. Take care my friend. :)

Nothing: He who in the name of peace would convert his weapons into ploughshares will plow for those who didn't.

Janis Joplin sang, "Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose." And in math it is said that nothing from nothing leaves nothing. But I think you have said it best. Hugs, J'nia

Quite powerful and thought provoking, Edvard - nothing can truly be something that is not very good.
Reviewed by David Maclellan
I read the lines several times, and each time the imagery conjured different thoughts and much power in four lines!
