ALL THAT'S RIPE

Folder: 
SLEEPY TIME POEMS

 

One screams, “It’s great to be alive!”

but Nietzsche says,

“All that’s ripe is ready to die.”

 

But I have the freedom

to respectfully disagree

 

Nietzsche drowns in the insanity

of his compassionate loneliness

 

Did he bring it upon himself?

Probably,

but we may never know

 

I’m still growing 

and far from reaching maturity

I guess I’ll need

to live another day.
