Death Of The Mad Man

Timothy S. Klugh

Someday, when I can no longer take the burden of my world,
I will close my eyes for the last time and soar into space.
There I will feel no pressure, tension or stress.
I will be without reason, I will be without time or place.

I will ponder the questions that were unanswered in life.
I will explore the limits of reality and imagination.
Alone at last, I will react upon whims without care.
My new destiny will be created in emotions and sensations.

When I have reached the farthest that I can possibly go,
I will look back upon the life that I once had.
Suddenly, I will inquire the point that I cared so much
About the people back there who treated me so bad.
