~ By Debi Lyn
I feel so sad right now. For one, I've gotten as fat as a cow!
I rarely remember what's not written down.
Sometimes I smile, but usually I frown.
So quickly the years keep fading away. My rich brown hair is turning gray.
I miss the old days, & that's the truth
- when I was able; I miss my youth.
Everyone is always so crazy busy. I can't keep up; it just makes me dizzy.
I wanted so to finally be free,
free to live alone and just be me!
It's a war 'tween my wants & my needs, both rushing about at mighty speeds.
If ever I find a way to catch up,
perhaps I'll be able to refill my cup.
Fill it indeed - right up to the brim, jump into the ocean & go for a swim,
sing & dance & laugh nonstop,
& drink in the sunshine until I drop.
That's what I'll do, I'll do it now -
as soon as I find who, what, when, where, & how.
