So Much Extra - Poem by Peter S. Quinn

Day and night is here
Always again returning
Bridges of the far and near
Behind thoughts burning

Humans come and go
Within their ego sharing
What will they one day know
With their thoughts steering

Each and all have a place
Where they're for a meaning
There're many words and ways
For each view of screening

Reach your goal or try again
Never stop your searching
Some days might be in vain
But the ways are perching

Everyone is measured out
In their looks and goals
What we stand for or about
Is all around the payrolls

Inside here and all around
Many old ways are dying
For the new ones there found
We each day are buying

Why is this all just as it is?
And never getting better
So much extra living quiz
Within each written letter
