I have nowhat to say
So I can say anything at all
I have nowhere to go
So I can go where I please
I have nowho to be
So I am anyone I want
I have nothing to carry
So I am completely at ease
I have nohow to ask
So I know how to act
I have nowhen ticking away
So I do not waste my days
I have nowhy to discover
So I am at rest
I have no competition
So I’m my very best

Based upon Dao De Jing 66.

About the Author: I have a B.A. in Honours Religious Studies from the University of Waterloo and I love all major world religions – Eastern, Western, or in between. I’m genderqueer, and I’m comfortable with male, neutral, and female pronouns. I’m married to my dear wife Lynn, who is the love of my life, my best friend, and my muse. I think far too much, and often have too many ideas to know what to do with. And I am a doing being, just like you!
