Just Thinking | A Poem by John Patrick Robbins

Today I saw it for what it truly was,
A long road that simply knew no end,
A struggle just for the sake of saying you were doing something worthwhile.

I don’t care to toil with no payout in sight,
To hold a title means nothing without something to show for it.

I thought, why had I not settled for happiness instead of chasing something I could never truly grasp?

I wish life had a reset button.
