Nothing Without You

by Nyisha Speight
(Ahoskie, North Carolina, USA)

The ground is nothing without grass
The sky is nothing without the Sun

The child is nothing without its mother
Someone to stop all their tears

A person's feet is nothing without shoes
to protect from fungus

The world is nothing
without the simple things of life
Just as I without you

I think this is one of the deepest texts i´ve read on this page. IT´s simple, I know, but it has transported me to a particular place.

Thanks for sharing it.
