To Have Nothing

by Camilla Jean Welsch

To have nothing?

Yeah, I had that once.

Was it liberating?

No.

Breathtaking. And by that, I don’t mean beautiful.

I guess I understand the fight in my own right.

For some people it’s the broken road to money.

For others it’s the broken road to humanity.

Or maybe it’s the broken road to reality.

The broken road to dignity… yes, that’s it, when all is said and done.

And we all want to die with dignity, right?

Right.

But it’s better when we also have it in life.
