You Wont Miss Me - Poem by Jonny Brackney

every great artist seems to ask
this highly pathetic
hypothetical question.
'would anyone miss me
if i were gone? '
i'd say, if you're going to
off yourself,
what does it matter?
it's those of us lacking
the courage
who trudge along
tormented by wonder.

    Like this, its a good question. But like
    You said what would it matter anyway.
    A great poem.
