ANOTHER DAY GONE
(8/26/16)

the lights
go off

we wonder
at our significance
as we lie
in our beds

on our
couches

on our
floors

wonder if
there's a better
way

we wonder
at those
with greater
purpose

they would seem
to have no time
to consider
such things

blindered
by their obsessions
they have not
the luxury
of such frivolous
mental meanderings

they are seen
by society
as successes

but we feel
sorry for them

they are
missing out

we relish
our freedom
of relaxed
reflection

besides

when we all
lie upon
our final
resting places

we shall have
the same
common regret

willing
to trade
all accomplishment

or lack
thereof

for one
more
breath
