Why Less

Why Less prose poem

Photo by Kalexanderson

My wife thinks I am worthless
My children think I am spineless
My boss thinks I am useless
My girl friend thinks I am heartless
My friend thinks I am aimless
My enemy thinks I am boneless
My colleague thinks I am baseless
My Son in law thinks I am hopeless
My teacher thinks I am brainless
My creditor thinks I am penniless
My sibling thinks I am careless
My parents think I am harmless
My grandson thinks I am selfless
My happiness is now boundless
