! When All Is Said And Done !

Is this what life is all about?
All there is to know...
I can't believe I've come this far
And still so far to go;
I haven't scratched the surface
Barely scribbled on the page,
And here I am about to end -
It puts me in a rage!

We need an expiration date
To keep us to the task
Of reaching goals significant
To answer what we ask;
It's all so very puzzling
This living that we do,
I need my own identity
But also, I need you!

So what's the actual purpose
Of my life experience?
To keep my thoughts in motion
While I'm sitting on this fence?
I wish I had the energy
To finish up with flair,
When all is said and done I guess....................
You wager what you dare.

Wow! I just discovered a fellow Utahn on this website! This is very well written. Why did FJR call you Midnight? Did you formerly publish your poems under that pseudonym?
