eulogy virtues


Let it never be said I came to this day
empty-headed:
that I confused the fast path
for the kind one.

Let it never be said I came to this life
empty-handed:
that I dropped my heritage
to catch a mask.

Let it never be said I came to you
empty-hearted:
that I took your blessings
and did not pass them on.

When it comes time,
tell them, tell them:
though sometimes I spilled over
and made a mess,
I was never empty,
never empty,
never
empty.
