My Name is Restlessness

Hi. My name is Restlessness –

Now, who needs love,
  it’s so impolitic;
And what use truth
  when you have rhetoric?

I am the stranger, sulking in the corner,
And at most parties, I’m the only mourner —
To face the world that is takes more than courage;
I know, because, in that way, I’m a purist —

So, my name is Restlessness, and I
Encourage you to live before you die;
And I will wander off to do the same —
It is my destiny,
My goal

My name
