by Pierre L. Sutton Jr.


An old man lies on his deathbed
pondering his adolescence. He cries,
"I wish I had been a leader instead
of a convalescent.
	Maybe then I would not go to my tomb
stricken with gloom and wondering what could've been."


A young M.D. enters the room distraught,
"I should've followed my heart rather being money led.
	Maybe then envy towards this old man I would not feel
if my dream of being a writer I had fulfilled."
