Thursday, Aug 21 2008 - the good soldier

View WILLLOSEIT's food & exercise for this day

things could be better
but i am not sad
at my lack of success
right now
i am thinking about other things
i will get back to me shortly

i have been quiet
away from anything
that reminds me
to be healthy
and eat well
it's easier
when it
doesn't stare you
in the face

a bright sun
does wonders
for a dark heart
even one sadden
by circumstances
it can not control

my second mom
is sick
very sick
and there is nothing
anyone can do
her life will end
in the blink of an eye
and we are doing
all we can
to make her last days
happy

but in the process
we are saddened
though we keep it
to ourselves
as much as we can
as she says
"i am
a good soldier"

i think i am too

time
is not timeless
yesterday
wasn't it 1992?
i hear the clock
ticking
wasted away
too many days
with worry,
and fear
and
tomorrow
is another day
when i could
have lived
for the day

most of my life
i see
in a rear view mirror
in front
the road
no longer endless
winding down
the glow
of youth
and all things possible
replaced
with wisdom
and things
i should have done
and the road
less traveled
beckons me
to its rutted road

what sense
do i make
of the past
unless
i simply
look to the future
and hope and pray
that one day
i will get to the place
i have always wanted to be
and so
another journey
begins today
