What I Really Want to Say

What I Really Want to Say August 23, 2010

If what I have can help,

you can have it.


We are carriers

not owners. As soon as we

think we own, we start longing

to receive. And everything

stops flowing.


Whatever it might be,

if it’s stuck, we can take it

apart and build something


Are you ready?

To be as loving as the hole

that receives the nail?

Is that too harsh?

Then, as the shell that hides

the minnow from the eel.

Let’s give it all away

and marvel at how

there’s always

more to give.
