Tears had flood my heart
But my eyes remain dry
The bottle filled to the brim
and capped on tight

They dig for more, and more
But i gave my all, and all
A glutton ate everything
and needed more to be served

Now I'm an empty soul
I sacrificed in vain for love
Pearls extracted from oysters
The hollow shell abandoned

Yet they aren't my solace
they doubt everything else
but me, giving in to them

Ungrateful greedy malicious people
competing to get to the top of the world
For status
And for wealth
the material things that leave when one dies.
