Poem: Filling Up the Essence of Emptiness

The coffee cup is empty
as I am, I can refill
the cup 
I’m less sure about myself

As someone wise once told me, 
nothingness can be useful;
in the cup
nothingness gives it purpose

Hollow is unlimited
in potential to be filled
by the cupful,
but what hand does the filling

A mindset of emptiness
creates a dependency
in a cup
requiring an outside hand

I want to fill up myself
with the deep liquid of life;
my cup
overflows with creation
