A Poem – Simple rhyme

I have had enough of complicated, only looking for easy times

Let the rats run their race, just leave some cheese and me behind

There is no more room for treasures, only space will ease my mind

I will take the flat road ahead, there are no mountains I need to climb

If you ask me about the end, I will say a life unlived is my only crime

And so I leave you all, my journeys end, a little story, a simple rhyme

An original composition by the author of Ends and Beginnings

About ends and beginnings blog

I am a frustrated writer and poet waiting to be discovered. A stand-up philosopher performing on a street corner near you. A Christian with questions but I don’t want to hear your answers. A Buddhist with a bumper sticker on my truck to prove it. A collector of quotes. A grower of lettuce. The Patron Saint of earthworms who name their children after me. A cyclist whose big ass strains the seams of his Lycra bibs. I am American by birth, Southern by the grace of God. My goal in life is to leave an imprint on the lives of the people I love not a footprint on the earth. I am a son, a husband, a father composed of 65%-Oxygen, 18%-Carbon, 10%-Hydrogen, 3%-Nitrogen, 3%-Diet Coke and 1%-Oreo.

  2. Loved this — though I have to admit I saw the second line differently and had to laugh, as in our political climate, it also made sense — I saw “I have had enough of complicated, only looking for easy times, Let the rats run their race, just leave some cheese and MY behind…”
