Life is Risk..

I woke up Sunday in a mood..not a good mood, in case you wanna ask. Sometimes you have those days when shit just bothers you and someone sneezing offends you, right?

What you don’t realize is that you are so focused on your own little minute problems not to realize things aren’t as bad as they could be.

I was reminded of that when 3 different ambulances showed up at our apartment complex at the same time and all looking for different people. Of course, being my neighbors, I knew at least a couple of the folks they were looking for. There was one in particular they came looking for that so happened to be the same age as I and I have been constantly amazed at how different in life we seem to be.

Although we are of the same age, he looks so much older than I. He has a problem with alcohol, to the point that if he stops drinking it will kill him. I gave drinking up over 20+ years ago cuz I didn’t know how to stop. He smokes..suffice to say we look quite different in age but the point of this is that his sister thinks he is about to die and was in a lot of pain, thus the ambulance.

The other point in this sad little tale being that my mood was of little consequence to someone’s well being and my perspective changed quite a bit after that little reminder of life’s risk. Make the best of each day, no matter what comes!

……….MY WILL……..
When I leave this world,
I leave my soul,
Bequeath to Earth,
A life untold.
Tis not in bitter disregard,
Nor out of hate..less, in disdain.
Forget the parts I’ve lived in vain..
Have you ever woken up to a sunny day?
When all is right,
Without a single need to pray?
Have you ever camped?
Walked the forest air,
Breathed it in?
Sighed away your every care!
Did you ever see a child’s gift of wondrous smile?
Ever raked up all the leaves,
Then jumped upon that big ol’ pile?
Did you ever hear the sunset sing a lullaby?
Orange-reddish, lyrics written
By the clouds goodbye?
Ever have you walked,
Seen a jump rope as you talked,
Jumped into its twirling middle,
While in your heart there played a fiddle?
Do you remember all your firsts?
School, friend, love, and skirts?
Life never sates your thirsts,
One life is not enough,
Yet, one is all we’ve ever seen.
One is all its ever been.
Remind oneself to..
Taste, smell, play, love..
Dance a foolish dance,
Smile in vain..why need a reason?
Thus when upon me falls the season,
When I finally, physically leave this world,
My wings in joy,
Will be unfurled!
