Prose - My Childhood Ended Today
This is about the continued deterioration of my Father as he is slowly succumbing to Alzheimers....
Today my childhood came to an end
But am I a man?
I looked to God to tell me when
Is it time to stand?
I heard a message that he did send
But where did it land?
Now all the problems of life will begin
Before, I ran
For so long I did not comprehend
Now I understand
My ego said it would be able to extend
Is it too far to span?
I thought I owned my island
I’m not in command
The fire of worry is a foundation of sand
I have been shaken
I have slept too long in selfish skin
Will I awaken?
There are no answers on which to depend
I have no plan
Everyone knows where I’ve been
It was dream land
Everyone knows where my time did spend
It was with sin
Now I know what world I’m in
Do I have a friend?
Must I pay for what hubris did lend?
I know I owe them
What does God’s will demand?
Is it only in heaven?
What will it take for me to ascend?
Must the nails penetrate my hand?
