It’s over
it’s finished
it’s done

I spent too much
To no effect
And only now
Do I detect
That no one is listening

Who am I to think
That I can talk
and talk
and talk
and simply by my words
Lead you to a place
That you do not wish to go

I’ve said my piece
I’ve said my fill
I cannot lead you
If you do not wish to follow

Now I will away
to some other place
to some other task
to some other endeavor
Which may at last
Have some useful purpose
