She does not know.

via Daily Prompt: Generous

She does not know she has nothing.
There was nothing from the start, nothing now.
No time or money, no good karma.
She is not selfish – she is in deficit.
How can she give more than expected
when she expects nothing anyway?
She does not know she has nothing.
There was no exchange, no learning experience.
No aspirations to break even here,
She does not know the formula, the breakdown.
How can she be generous?
She has no pieces worth giving that she’s ever known.
She does not know. She has nothing.
