It matters not whether the glass is half empty or half full

what’s important is whether or not the spring has run dry

Remember that you cannot fill a glass if the jug is empty

Growth and reflection is something you cannot buy.


As you become wiser, you learn the value of patience

of knowing thyself, and understanding the self

although getting caught in restlessness

has its time, its place, on the shelf.


As times web doth ebb on

the multi-faceted nature of ourselves multiplies

until the self can be switched off

and the next me worn as a disguise.
