Epiphany of Waste

This poem was written a long time ago. It asks why people waste their talents. Well, sort of.
Epiphany of Waste
By Robert Park
Date Unknown
I'm wasting time
Writing poetry
When I could be working
Accomplishing a life story.
How do you create a story
When your direction is wary?
When your vision is nary?
When your desires are folly?
When things must be done
Because you have things to do
Why do you waste time
With stuff you should not do?
When time is lacking
And you're just slacking
Why do you avoid that
Which is most important?
It's a mystery
But a paradox underneath
When your true desires are revealed
And you care not for a legacy.
