No Depth That's Meant


Detected and suspected,
To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,
That has a real content.

Detected and suspected,
To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,
That has a real content.

Only believed to be an ego 'feign'.
And detected and suspected,
To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,
That has a real content.

Doing and saying things just to be seen.
And detected and suspected,
To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,
That has a real content.

Only believed to be an ego 'feign'.
With a doing and saying things just to be seen.
Full of conceit from their head to their feet,
And a superficial, artificial life conceived.

To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,

Having no..
Depth that's meant.
Having no real depth that is meant.

Depth that's meant.
Having no real depth that is meant.

Having no...
Depth that's meant.
Having no real depth that is meant.
Having no real depth that is meant.
Having no...
Depth that's meant.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
