How much?

By: James Aitchison

Being human you are finite;
do not give of yourself
to the extent you
become vulnerable.
The Wheel spins:
some hear emptiness,
some hear the whole melody.
When you listen, accept.
When you do not hear,
listen more deeply.
Isolate yourself and gain
the blade of self-knowledge.
How much to give
will then become obvious.
