Poetry

A Grave Mistake

Man will do anything 

To give

His life 

Meaning

And

Purpose 

Anything 

Like 

Waking 

At four o'clock

In the morning 

And going about

Doing things 

Like making phone calls 

Across time zones

Working out 

Meeting people

Debating

Pontificating

About nothing

Incessantly moving

Spinning wheels

Doing 

Everything 

And

Nothing 

At the same time 

Running all over

Yet

Going nowhere

But in circles

This is a grave mistake 

That man makes 

Most all of his life

Thinking that it is him who makes 

Meaning out of a life

That is not even his

Nor does he ever give

The chance to live

~ A Grave Mistake ~
