No help for that - Poem by Charles Bukowski

There is a place in the heart that
will never be filled

a space

and even during the
best moments
and
the greatest times
times

we will know it

we will know it
more than
ever

there is a place in the heart that
will never be filled
and

we will wait
and
wait

in that space.

    From left to right we pace
    in attempt to fill this space,
    we walk in a haste
    skipping through seeming wastes

    but we have to slow down our pace
    closely exam the wastes
    and life's true meaning: happiness;
    we shall get a taste

    life isn't a race
    because the filling of
    the eternal empty space
    is the real chase

    Great poem, We always feel empty inside. no success, wealth or relationships can fill that space. We need to surrender our ego and embrace God (Report)Reply
