Human Beings -Abbas Mohamed

Human Beings -Abbas Mohamed

“The best thing we can do
(for ourselves)
is be

The best thing we can be
(for our souls)
is empty

To allow Divine Breath
to fill in the empty spaces

to remember us
to express to us
to speak to us
to create us

to annihilate us
to speak through us
to express through us
to remember Him
through us

till we are empty spaces
and all that is left is Divine Breath”
