Alright two things: first; the title is an important part of the poem, always, I think this is a general rule of poetry mine and yours both second; don't base your entire opinion of the piece on the title, this one, for example, is not about my death or whether or not you should mourn me when I'm dead. Please enjoy. Comments and criticism are appreciated.

Listen too much
And hear too much
Ponder too much
And know too much
See too much
And observe too much

Judge me by my appearance
And hope I judge you by yours
Judge me by my attitude
And hope I don’t judge yours

What difference does it make
What happiness can be gained
Fuck this
Don’t judge at all
Don’t accuse
But observe
And let not observation turn to accusation

Be too keen
And feel too much
Feel too much
And hurt more then enough

Pain is not the end
It is only pain
As death is death
And death is the end

What difference does it make
Whether we are mourned
Fuck this
Don’t mourn
Don’t crie
But celebrate
And let me be remembered through joy

Listen too much
And hear too much
Ponder too much
And know too much
See too much
And you start to learn a few new things.
