The Answer - Poem by JohnToporek
The education of a man is far more than from schools,
his influence and power are the things that make the rules.
The wealth attained throughout his life cannot describe his worth,
the time he lives of no concern or value to this earth.
The daily actions that he takes are far from his day dreams,
he pulls so hard to keep life loose while bursting at the seams.
The contribution from his stay is just his row to hoe,
there is a purpose just for him in this life he won't know.
He'll serve his time and bring some joy to life or through his death,
and finally know what it's been for after his short last breath.
