306. When

When I smile,
  I make everything out of nothing.
When I love,
  I make everything out of nothing.
When I offer,
  I make everything out of nothing.
     But
When I hesitate to smile,
  I make nothing out of everything.
When I delay in loving,
  I make nothing out of everything.
When I calculate in my offering,
  I make nothing out of everything.
