Its Emptiness - Poem by Dorsey Baker

Its emptiness
that makes the rabbit
fall over dead
not the bullet thats
in his head
his courage denies him defeat
denies him his hunger
when he has nothing to eat
Its emptiness
that makes the hawk
give up the fight
refusing to let his eyes
see the colors of black
and white
Its emptiness
that has the power to kill
making the strongest spirit
bow to its will!

    Same is applicable to life of a person. An empty mind is called a devil's workshop and it's condition becomes worse than death. Thanks for sharing.10 points. (Report) Reply

    Its emptiness
    that makes the rabbit
    fall over dead
    not the bullet thats
    in his head- -it's equally true to the case of human being, well penned poem, thanks
