abstract (first draft)

The water running out

of the faucet cannot be grasped.

The air embraces you but you

cannot embrace it in return.

A light beam’s journey

can be obstructed by

your hand, creating shadows

but you cannot take it with you.


Sitting on the floor, legs crossed

over each other, and my hand on my phone

taking the whole world in

and everything goes through me

as if I am not really there.


You can only feel love or show it.

Like water, it needs a vessel

before you can drink it; like air,

it embraces you and not the other

way around; like light, it takes a journey

and it can get lost or hindered

but never taken away.


This is how I learn to be useful.
