A Man Alone Is Only His Own Death

A MAN ALONE IS ONLY HIS OWN DEATH

A man alone is only his own death
Who gives nothing to the generations to come
What does he give?
What has his life been for?
A man alone as far he goes
Goes nowhere.
Even if they worship his dust
His dust is just dust,
And his life has been death also.

I have so enjoyed reading the small number of poems I have time for this morning. I must go to work now, but hopefully will find time soon to read more of your wonderful work.
