No Amount

No amount of coffee
No amount of time
No amount of whiskey
No amount of wine
No amount of money
No amount of fame
No amount of comfort
No amount of blame
No amount of silence
No amount of tears
No amount of chaos
No amount of fear
No amount of reason
No amount of wit
No amount of toughness
No amount of grit
No amount of cowards
No amount of strays
No amount of sunsets
No amount of days
No amount of boasting
No amount of wars
No amount of wanting
No amount of whores
No amount of bleeding
No amount of dead
No amount of produce
No amount of bread
Could ever satisfy
Or hope to deny
The wantings of my heart
Or Your pursuit of mine.

 

*Note: If you’re into moderately-obscure folk music, you’ll already know that 3 of the first 4 lines are not original. They served as the godward springboard for the rest of this meditation. All credit for them goes to The Weepies, “Gotta Have You.”

    Hi Nate,

    So a part from the lines you mentioned, you wrote the rest? That is really good. We miss you and Jack. I wonder where he is and how he’s doing…have a good night!
