From the beginning of our lives
we're taught from our parents,
teachers and mentors, the rules
we'll need to be accepted in society.
What bills we must pay, the hours
we must work, and how much free
time we're allowed.
Like parts in this great machine, this should make us happy, but
I done as I was taught,
Doing and caring for all those around in my life,
with little needs or wants
Eighteen years , many fortunes given,
Time spent in worry, aggravation and constant pressure
for more from those close to me.
All good things must come to an end,
the free train came to an end.
Then you must learn to make your own self happy
And content with who and how
you are, not how others try and tell you what makes you happy.
Listen , learn and obey the laws
This will help your travels thru life.
And when your life is over,
and all is said and done,
I was homeless when I wrote this after having been run over once. I have since been run over again and now have traumatic brain injury. God let me live for a purpose. As a former Navy man and as a Christian I believe that God wants me to share his impact in my life.
