So Much…

Posted in poem by johnsontoms on September 11, 2012

So much, they know so damn much,

Seen so damn much and been so many damn places

And all I want to know is if they tasted the wine.

It wouldn’t be so much to live a little

But I think it reaches a point where knowing so much

Turns a man into commodity.

A machine, if you will, not so much a pawn

Because they got here by choice.

Hell of a choice, I say.

One day maybe we will outgrow having to make that decision,

More likely not because we’re living but because it’s the end.
