You cannot pour from an empty cup,
A plant cannot grow without the sun,
You cannot give what you do not have,
You cannot paint without a canvas,
You cannot hope when you’re not inspired,
You cannot give, when you are empty,
You cannot be happy, when you carry a daily weight,
You cannot love when you don’t feel loved,
You cannot teach, when you lack the knowledge,
Substance comes from within,
I cannot continue to remain feeling empty when I have nothing to give…
