The Ancient Modern

Give Everything Away  /  Joshua Alan Sturgill         

In reading,
voracious.
In speaking,
reserved.

In writing,
poetic.
In confession,
unguarded.

Your life 
a commentary
on permanence.
Give everything

you are; being
has no limit.
In death,
generous

One thought on “Give Everything Away

  1. Josh, I just really appreciate the conception of this generosity with our death (deaths) as you framed it. It is a good word.
