Emptying


I am emptying
myself

of all things comprising
myself

in an attempt to
be the most perfect
servant,

but I’ll never know
if I reach it

because
by then
I would have lost,
I should have lost

my name,
my personal pronouns,
myself.

  2. I like this one, especially when I read it aloud. It's one that I am going to want to come back and read again later after I have thought about it.
