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
Look at what life has done to me.
See the ailments life has given me.
Feel how life has burdened me.
Loved ones gone,
Behold those life has taken from me.
Meet the joys life has handed me.
Friends are dear,
Touch dear ones life has granted me.
Highs to lows.
Recount the days life has afforded me.
