If you thing that nothing is just that, nothing, then...you 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,
