Here lies the body of a man I witnessed run himself dry. 

He disguised it as selflessness. 

His cup was never full, so he still felt thirsty. 

His plate was never filled, so he still felt hungry. 

Yet he wore his disguise proudly. 

Spreading himself thin became his main priority.

What do you call a man who witnesses himself run dry? 

A fool 

What a cruel thing to self-inflict that pain.
