Unwritten Soul


Greatness Come From Nothing


Again the same voice taken to your core
Placed your emotion down
Down for the word
Or self saying
'Nothing is you'
Melt your feeling to find me
If my voice again can remind you
Let love that word as much as i do
As nothing is somewhere in a space
The space where the opportunities hidden
Tell me where can do we start?
If everything is finished
So let our new begin

Wild white skin
Just another solitary paper
Where nothingness is the only story
Till there's a simple touch discover on it
Filled the spaces along the drawn lines
Painted then with technicolors
For now become a masterpiece
With a different story
Glory maybe?
We began as nothing
To rise and become something
Would you try remember this story
A masterpiece that once was a paper white

Say me your life may not high
Upon the height of the mountain
What built it is by nothing, nothing!
Only a sand stacked on the other sands
Together with rock along the same land
Nothingness climb from sea to atmosphere
And towering a place where beautiful scenery it be
How nothingness creating to be great something
Nothing is nothing when we do nothing for something

In comparison between souls
May sometimes feel you are nothing,
Again another story for you to remember
Arrogance is a beauty for blindness my dear
People owning diamonds, more than what i have, water
I am sorry, just because nothing only water i can share you
That they can buy you bottles with their every sparkling stones
Thirst while travel in the desert with diamonds whole your body
All your diamonds are cheaper than a few drop of my water
I have nothing than your pricey things to relief my thirst
I will not jealous if you drink your boxes of diamonds
Enough me for I'll drink my cheap water only
Even my water just nothing than your gems
This nothingness even satisfy me more

In nothingness
Of what we have and in self
Oh my dear, where we are now
Still at the beginning, not yet to end
While nothing we own, only own a start
What you have let it build all you something
Even nothing is all you have in hands
It can bring things something
Because something come from nothing
Nothing is a beginning where everything start

Who you are now
Nothing to someone?
Greatness is always behind, and...
Waiting to come after a move to start

For this write, i write as free as i talk
All know that i write simple, and this write simpler
easy words easy line so you can understand
we sometimes believe that we are just nothing

a bit explanation if it still confuse you
stanza 2:
A paper is like us, white and nothing
but once we start to paint, a trial to enriched self a new step
we never failed to be a painting, at least we are colorful
just we must try to take a step for nothing to be something
nothing is a chance for us to discover what we can go and do

stanza 3:
People may see sand and bead of soil nothing precious
and they become mountain, bulking of nothingness in layers
however this nothing thing success create a beautiful landscape
and even inspire people as it touch the sky than any can do
more than we climb and amazed how life is wide when we look down it

stanza 4:
comparing self and others, should not value ourselves as not useful
as i use diamond and water in different place, water can give life to thirsty traveler in desert while diamond only for eyes. so our life too, even we are not good in many things, still we are great in certain thing, and it is our greatness, that make you valuable and undefeated

    A poem can begin from a few simple lines written on a piece of paper.
    Then those lines are carefully analyzed and scrutinized to the point that
    they become something of value. Something great from nothing has
    appeared. An inspiring write. (Report) Reply

    Wonderful stories and images
    woven into melodious verses
    to express a giant truth.
    From nothing to something to greatness.

    Still my good friend, for some,
    nothingness is a high good as well.
    Some people consider it a lofty aim
    to expereince the nothingness
    when we stop our endless train of thoughts

    I love the inspiration that goes out from the poem
    It is giving a person who is down a wonderful reason
    to stand up and start painting on the canvas of life.
    Use their own talents, be it those of water or those of diamonds

    Only if our worth is appreciated by ourselves, can others appreciate it
    Oh yes, Soul, a great piece of art is here
    Thought provoking, flowing over with good meaning
    Excellent work (Report) Reply

    It is beautiful. Indeed, we have nothing always to start. And many times there after. A wishing for the happily ever after. Give me water, not diamonds. Because they don't sustain, they have there purpose, but it is not in my pocket or on my finger. Precious stones all the same, over valued and used in the wrong way. A story to live, not hear. Meager as it may seem. Hands washed and cleaned. No dirt left under the nails. So pink and frail, it is from the lack substance.
    Eating flavor nothing else. Living horror stories from a place down deeper then hell. Why let the soul dwell in such a retched state. Why not unlock the gate. Let it be free. Let it enjoy the fruits of its own labor, rather then denying the existence of a need for it? Honest or silver spoon? Some call me a loon and maybe I am. But I understand this whole heartedly and completely. For I have been to nothingness more then once and it is very lonely place to be. A fresh start is all one ever really needs.

    An eloquent well put poem. I love it. It is beautiful in so many ways. (Report) Reply

    comparing ourselves with others is not true.we should put ourselves in the God 's eyes.we must think what are we in front of God's eyes.
    we all now a dimond itself is a chunk of coal that is made under highly pressure.so everything can be made from nothing but under a highly pressure.nothingness cant be everything without effort.
    fabulous poem.~nb (Report) Reply

    As you say a grain of sand may be nothing but in numbers become beautiful beaches, mountains.
    So are people made up of millions of seconds, of time compacted into a space called us.
    All of us have inside the potential fo greatness, it's that tiny grain of sand, that second we become
    aware. We are just grains and seconds away from greatness all. (Report) Reply
