Emptiness

on

What fills the emptiness in your life? You’d be lying if you say you never feel empty. I’d be lying if I say there is no emptiness in my life. I open eyes in the morning to another day of pointless breathing. I look at the scars on my arms that sing songs of my pyrrhic victory on life. I look at the mirror and a hollow face stares back. I walk out into the world and see craters surrounding my existence. I sit down in peace and a void envelopes me. An emptiness fills the emptiness in my life.

    I am reminded of a book I read many years ago: “Everyday Sacred” by Sue Bender. She compares life to a bowl and suggests that we need to empty our bowls in order to receive more. (My words – somewhat inadequate).

      Never heard of this book but what you just explained somehow reminds me of Dalai Lama.

        Yes. I think he was the source of much of her inspiration.

  2. Well, I’d be lying if I said there’s no emptiness in my life either. I admit that I sometimes wonder how best to fill that whole. However, I feel for the narrator of this piece. I can’t imagine what they must’ve go e through to feel like breathing is pointless… thanks BTW for following my blog, your support means the most to me
