The Fool

I had nothing

I had everything

And it didn’t change a thing

Happiness is not found in such ways

Unless you believe

That this world is

Your personal heaven

And that all they are

Is your audience

And you will not learn

To live

Or to die

In dignity

Because you are a fool.


Simone van Hove Emery

  1. In a sense, we’re all fools as we begin this life, and, it’s with the added on of our life’s experiences that brings depths to our intelligence, it’s our expereinces in life, the trials we weathered through, that’s made us into intelligent beings.
