close your eyes

forget were you are

young child

please

just think

your mind is better

are you hungry..

thirsty?

i will give you what i have

holding out my empty hands

and open them to nothing

dont cry

instead

open your eyes

and your hands

do not stop

come with me

to this fountain

cup the water

and watch your hands run dry
