The Void

The void –

That blank, empty space that cannot be filled,

No matter how hard we try.

~

The thoughts –

Those ideas we cannot seem to dismiss,

No matter how hard we endeavor.

~

The actions –

Those behaviors that make us who we are,

No matter what others tell us.

~

The person –

Who we are: not only in the dark, but also in the light;

Not who the world thinks we should be, but who we truly are.

~

This all contributes to the world as we know it,

But do we truly know ourselves?

Without this self-knowledge,

The world would fail to have meaning.

~

For through us the world cultivates a meaning of its own.

Fare thee well!
