Old Friend of Many None by Jasen Sousa

Old Friend of Many None


Because of the destructive lifestyles
I have been around for most of my existence,
I run, I diet, I sweat, I fast, 
and do everything in my power
to keep myself healthy.

Maybe in the end
I’ll be an old and wrinkled man
with a brain that stayed fully intact,
not allowing me to forget,
but only to remember everyone I have lost.

All my friends I grew up with 
will be gone

and there will be no one left
to visit in jails, in mental hospitals, and in half-way houses.
They will have all succumbed to their lifestyles, and they
will not need to call me anymore for assistance.

And there will be no one left

to come and visit me.
