striving for just enough

it must be
just as terrible
having everything
as it is when
you have nothing
exchanging need
for the torture
of finding reasons
to keep going

the same way
retirement leads
to falling apart
we need to need
to have routine
a purpose to fight
off the entropy
a perpetual motion
machine sitting idle
is a collection
of random junk

i may daydream
about having it all
but i am content
with simply having
enough
