I followed an oil tanker. 
Every time it jumped over a bump or hit a pothole, it spilled oil. 
It was a small drop, but still spillage. 
I saw myself leaking like the tanker.
I fill myself with things that cause leakage. 
I have to seek daily to be filled with the Spirit.
Unlike the tanker or a gas cylinder, 
I don’t have to wait to be fully empty. 
Before I seek a refill.
