Said shallow to deep,
‘How can you be generous when you have so little?’
Said deep to shallow,
‘I have enough. I am quite content.’
‘How can you be carefree when life is terrifying in its uncertainties?’
‘I go with the ebb and flow. I learn from experience.’
‘How can you be a smiling fool, when crushed by adversity?’
Replied deep to shallow,
‘You can live to be a thousand
Yet, never experience anything the way I feel.
‘When I breathe, I feel the air
You don’t even realize that you breathe
‘You can never feel the wind’s caress or the sun’s warmth,
You are numb to all the beauty around you.
