no need

There is no need.
I wonder how much time I wasted
-will I regret it,
when age and stiffness creep upon me
like a snow but deadly snail
There is no need –
each day another hour or two
always thinking really should
hardly ever really could –
There is no need.
another night alone
breathing into useful minutes
doing small & unimportant things
feeling that I
am wasting away, more than the time.
Is there no need?
What is there want for,
how can I exist of my own will
to live?  Is that not selfish?
Do I not need
to be needed?

There is no need.

    Such emotions – reaching out – throughout your poetic verse.

    Truly amazing and worthy of such high praise.
