I am nothing



In good health,
In fear of perpetual youth,
I am nothing.
I might live
And "glorify God
And enjoy him forever."
I would drink deeper.
The invisible boundary,
Of the spirit ready.
Do not shun the heavenly lights.
For Nature shuts down,
And the Sun,
Anciently washed
By the River.
For I am nothing,
And nothing I am.

About this poem
