The End, The Middle and The Beginning

Updated on March 27, 2009

Written October 1995

 Thursday was fun, so I thought, made two runs.

Friday the same, fooled myself, said just one.

A rent a friend smiled, held the dooor, flashed some cash.

I ran out three more times, ran the forty buck dash.

But when Saturday came, I awoke with a start

looking up at my kids what I saw broke my heart.

Pain and rejection, pure fear in their eyes,

So much did they love me they wore no disguise.

I cried in my coffee

I screamed on the phone.

Miss Mary said "Get Here!"

I came here alone.

So I 'stuck and staid',

Lost my kids, gave up wealth.

For the message I heard. . .

"Take the time, love yourself."

Within fourteen days I planted my feet.

Surrendered my ego, admitted defeat.

Got on my knees,

Learned I was loved,

And centered my focus on things from above.

If you've taken the time to read this my friend.

Remember you're worth it and fight til the end!
