Young Fool

It’s so funny how

That now when I look back

It’s with different eyes

It’s so funny how

That with my 20:20 retro vision

My life becomes a set of lies


Did I let my life pass me by?

Was fear of failure fear enough

And so no matter how I say goodbye

I know I didn’t give my best stuff


What could have, should have been

Simply rejected for normality

Now I look back to life as a teen

It’s with an increasing sense of finality


It’s so funny how

Now I really think about it

Dream, imagine and drool

It’s so funny how

Now I am able to act upon it

It seems as if I was just a young fool





I think my next book of poetry will be called Songs to put music to

It would be great if someone would do that…
