It’s late

Through
my whole life
I never smoked.

Why I started then?
It’s good while waiting
for a bus to come.

This is what I tell
when I’m asked –
Because

it’s too awkward to say
I’m waiting
for death.

      1. Truth be told, there are a lot of under-covered topics and one of my goals with poetry (though I have to say I don’t always do a good job of it) is to cover them. There’s so much breadth to life!

      2. You’re doing your best that makes you the best of you, that’s my belief.

        Detto, I’ve got a huge pack of inspiration-notes that I’m insisted to do. However, it is sometimes too hard to reach that level of howtosay “inner peace” to do anything.

        Nevermind, life is ups and downs even if it’s like an underground rollercoaster. Hah. Your intention comes first… if you want to write them, with time, you will do it. 🤗🤗🤗

      3. Thanks, friend. I AM trying my best. But when one thinks about it purposefully, is there an extra ten percent that can be given? It seems that discussion only foments desire to achieve, so this was a good chat. n.n

        Life certainly is ups and downs, and yet somehow in my mind I see the ideal. Oh well.
