Omar Khayyam (50)

By

You’ve seen the world,
and all you’ve seen is nothing;
and everything, as well, 
that you have said and heard
is nothing.
You’ve sprinted everywhere
between here and the horizon;
it is nothing.
And all the possessions
you’ve treasured up at home
are nothing.

from Whinfield 50
