Who is this fellow in the mirror?
Some call me Jim, others old man.
Where did my life go?
How did I squander my time?
So graciously given, so incompletely lived,
So unprepared for the day I'm in.
Little money to enjoy what time is left.
One of many thoughts that brighten my day.
My favorite eatery demands I rise before dawn,
For the discount I need to enjoy their buffet,
Of grease and lesser quality food I can't digest.
But I digress. I could have been something,
Coulda, woulda, shoulda;
But was unwilling to pay the price.
Simple really, surrender myself to God
And receive the desires of my heart.
That would have been nice!
Now I just have strength enough to breath
And maybe cry to myself...ever so often.
