I am dead because

I am dead because I lack desire,
I lack desire because I think I possess,
I think I possess because I do not try to give;

Trying to give, you see you have nothing,
Seeing you have nothing, you try to give of yourself,
Trying to give of yourself, you see that you are nothing,
Seeing that you are nothing, you try to become,
Trying to become, you begin to live.
