poets crux

by Matthew Sharp

may you sleep when you speak
and still be aware

may you serenade yourself
when no one is listening

may you be understood
by someone who hates poetry

may you adapt to dying
and live forever

I'm trying to adapt but when you've wssted most of your life you wonder a little bit. Good write Matthew.
