Lessons Learned

I shouldn’t have started
Or entertained the very thought
We gather here to honor
The dearly departed
My own funeral
I’m setting up shop
Ready the pallbearers
I’m killing myself
At least, I’m letting me die
It’s moving traffic
Simply step to the side
That ending though
Too quick and far too easy
Yes, deliberate
Shameless and shamed fully
Now that it has begun
I anticipate the end to come
Hopeless helplessness
Repetition, the key to learning
This lesson learned
But often repeating
I know this feeling
Too many times over
Hardly a doer
But mostly a knower
Here I am
Where are you?
