Am I Wasting My Life


AM I WASTING MY LIFE

Am I wasting my life
With more meaningless poems
That no one reads?

Am I after all the years
Still piling words on words
No one needs?

What have I done?
Who am I?
Only God knows.

Let my children I pray
Make good lives
Despite this harsh world.

    I hope, 'Am I Wasting My Life' is a depiction of an observance.
    And not a conclusion reached by anyone of creativity! Such a 'final'
    assessment of one self obsessed with obtaining an acceptance,
    one has not yet done him and/or herself. And to have children?
    One should hope the children are motivated to achieve a happiness
    of self worth! the poem is depressing on several levels of thought.
    If this was the intention...it has been accomplished. (Report) Reply

    Never believe that creativity is a waste of time. You are expressing on paper an internal belief, better express it then supress it. This is for you and not for everyone. Thank you from me as I have read your words. (Report) Reply
