Emptying Emptiness

Rosualdo is just an ordinary person with an extraordinary God, who wants to spread God’s words and love through writing articles and poems.


But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” (1 Peter 1:15-16 NIV)

Emptying emptiness is uprooting the weeds of greed

For if it stays on the short course of life it will breed

Sow the valuable seed of kindness and generosity

And emptiness will perish of poverty and scarcity

Emptying emptiness is repealing the venom of envy

For if it dwells in the heart it will be hard for a remedy

Immunize it with the effective and powerful vaccine of contentment

And emptiness will succumb on its compartment

Emptying emptiness is removing the garbage of hate

For if it resides in the soil of the heart it will not vacate

Let the power of love begin to rule and reign

And emptiness will lose its profitable gain

Emptying emptiness is eliminating the virus of pride

For if it will remain in the route of life it will survive

Inject it with the strong and potent antidote of humility

And emptiness will forfeit its mastery and capability

Emptying emptiness is denying the fancies of worldlines

For if it is the driving force of life it will cause unhappiness

Install the extraordinary appetite of heavenly ambition

And emptiness will surrender its worldly intention

Emptying emptiness is roaming in the path of righteousness

It will enlighten a life to live in the light of unselfishness

It will set the heart free from the unnecessary empty craving

And will empower and energize to a holy and joyful living

Emptying emptiness is filling up the empty heart with God

For a God-filled heart is a heart filled and ruled with glad

Unless an existence is not free from the trash and dominion of emptiness

A precious life will fall to the worthless land of loneliness and meaningless
