It Does Not Make Any Difference At All - Poem by RIC BASTASA

i must admit
i do not know a thing anymore
i have lost faith in the stars
no longer believing in
those cards

you tell me once i am wrong
and so i have had so many revisions
and like most people that you know
i tried to live my life like the way
we ought to: we work hard, we follow rules
we have dreams and pose hope in
all our kindest and honest

look at you, without the stars
you have failed
and look at you once more,
with all the hard work
you too amount to nothing

you die in the same way that
stars die
you die just the same
like all hardworking men
