To Cherish

169648-Goldfish

To cherish one in their childhood is to give

Must we empathize with our foes to forgive?

Slapdash ideation hoarded in a sieve

Spilled ink replenishing our will to live

To cherish one in their dotage is to give

-Eugenia

  1. What do I give when I have no more?
    When giving weakens our heart and our soul, it destroys.
    I have nothing more to give from deep within
    My soul is saddened, thus no more giving.
