Nothingness; a reflection upon society

As I was doing some cleaning of a very old email database, I came across something I wrote on the 10th of July 2006. It’s interesting to realise that not much has really changed in 10 years. We need to work harder at making our society a more friendly place. So here is a poem called Nothingness; a reflection upon society.

 

Nothingness

There once was a little nothing.

It grew and grew.

It became larger.

Now there was a lot of nothingness.

 

There quickly became significantly nothing.

It grew and grew.

It became larger.

A whole lot of overwhelming nothingness.

 

There was now a vast quantity of great nothing.

It grew and grew.

It became larger.

Suddenly, there was so much nothingness.

 

The black hole of mankind that giveth nothing.

 

Now, I know … not the greatest poetry. I’m not a great poet, and I know it. Still, it makes us think. We need something: more kindness.
