The most intellingent person to grace my life

had no teeth

no education

no money

no home

no family

no god

no agenda

but he was so well acquainted with the sweet elixir of truth

it dripped like honey from his lips

as he looked at you and said

I love…

  1. You know me, I’m that bellowing mad screamer in the background Bryan who wears everyone down with the constant preachy lecture to be grateful, even if it kills you…well that and those waves of guilt I send out regularly. hehehe

    1. Exactly Dhyan, that is how this guy lived his very simple yet complex life. I don’t suppose when we are lying on our death beds, we’ll be thinking about how we look, what we own, whether we paid our taxes, who we know, what school we went to or how that career is going. We will be thinking probably three things: who do we love,who do we hate and what did we do with all those years. Thank you for reading this Dhyan! 🙂
