Alternative Energy

For some reason,
we forget
the power
of a negative
experience.

So much of life
is spent
padding sharp corners
so people
won’t be hurt,
but…

Give a man a fish,
feed him for a day.
Teach him how to fish,
feed him for a lifetime.

Openly laugh at him
while eating a fish
as he starves in the streets,
and maybe one day
dock your little boat
in his marina.

You never know
what fuels someone.
