Life

out here it sure looks different now

people, all kinds of people

walking, looking, touching things

some smiling and some not

some have a limp and some don’t

some push their shopping carts easily

others are leaning, relying on theirs

.

where did we all come from

at one time we were all back at home

safe in the womb of childhood

what terrible fortune befell us

it’s not just aging, getting older

it’s life and the way it sucks at

us, takes from us, gives us ulcers

.

life can be wonderful

or it can be a cruel bastard

Life

I.

Teeth jagged,

Eyes baggy,

Hair ceding.

Look at what life has done to me.

II.

Ulcer burns,

Stomach churns,

Eyesight fades.

See the ailments life has given me.

III.

Anger fits,

Hatred dwells,

Patience thin.

Feel how life has burdened me.

IV.

Beloveds depart,

Loved ones gone,

Mourning great.

Behold those life has taken from me.

V.

Family grown,

Love’s expanse,

Comfort felt.

Meet the joys life has handed me.

VI.

Friends are dear,

Circle grows,

Tightened knit.

Touch dear ones life has granted me.

VII.

Countless times,

Great events,

Highs to lows.

Recount the days life has afforded me.
