The Happy Hollows

Updated on July 16, 2010

The Happy Hollows


Your contents

Dug out

And forgotten



Frozen in time


You pity us

Because we feel

And because we feel


I don’t want to


What lurks in your

Kind head

Is sweet nothing

Friendly nothing

Hollow smile

Meaning nothing.

[For more information on the thoughts and philosophies backing this poem, please see the book "The Brain That Changes Itself" by Norman Doidge.  This book discusses brain plasticity, and that using our brain - forcing, promoting repeating, thought and thought processes, develops in us new skills, new traits, new ideas and in extreme cases a new personality.  Let's promote healthy brains.  Let's promote thinking.  Thinking will then promote fellow feeling.  And there will be no hollow thoughts, no animalism.]

      There is nothing worse than a hollow smile. I really like this poem and the explanation that follows.
