Give Every Day

And we feed this vacuous empty with noise and light,
technology and companionship,
and turn our back on that which will satisfy.
We deny our core values and whitewash our filthiness in an effort to manifest a semblance of trust and maturity.
In our hearts we pump a steady stream of “love”, and yet we have not love because we daily disregard love – love for our world, love for our friends, love for our families, love for ourselves.

It is not something we give, but it must be exemplified in all we give up.
For I cannot give love without giving up selfishness.

It’s not about me, it’s everyone else.
