If You Knew - Poem by Danny Draper
If you knew of your demise
Not the way just the time
- How would you enlist the future?
Seek your wrongs to make them right
So you may sleep, such clichéd trite.
Would you read to kids
at a local school
so today may influence tomorrow
Or lose yourself in pursuit
of the greater good
So at each days end
you are tired and spent
but always satisfied.
Would you embark on projects
that take years
and contribute regardless
of not seeing their end?
Would you fill each day
and complain for want
of a bigger glass?
