Nothing is free

by Bartholomew L Miller CC BY NC SA

Nothing is free.
If you grew up in privilege like me,
somebody else is paying for it.

I don’t mean your parents.
I mean children digging metal
out of the ground
and mothers hauling water for hours
to wash babies who will someday
chip away at mine walls in search of
expensive rocks.

the cost is greater than the expense

We are selfish.
Everything about us is selfish
especially our delusions

Wake up.
Wake up!

Nothing is free.
especially love
If you’re not paying for it,
somebody else is.
