Enough? - Poem by Adam Thoms

It's not enough to live, you gotta give.
It's not enough to share, you gotta care.
It's not enought to see, you gotta be.

It's not enough to yearn, you gotta learn.
It's not enough to know, you gotta grow.
It's not enough to strive, you gotta thrive.

It's a process
One beautiful mess
I confess
I've given less
Still I ask to be blessed

We all could use a hand
Some can walk and some can bearly stand.

Is it enough to try? No
You've gotta fly
Is it enough to fly? NO!
You've gotta get high.
Is it enough to get high? NO!
Then ask yourself why
Is it enough, it's not enough, is it enough, it's not enough.
