How Long - Poem by Reshad Scott

How long does it take
Before I can't seem to remember.
All the good times I had
That somehow seems to simmer.

How long does it take
Before I realize that I am awake.
Traveling through life, though
Which part should I partake?

How long does it take
Before I cry a river of tears.
Analyzing our activities
That dispersed over the years.

All this stored up anger, now
Where should it all lead?
Stirring up this question, as
How Long should it be?
