I Sit Here And Ponder My Life

Updated on September 8, 2010

My Life And Why I Enjoy It So Much

I have been blessed

I don't have a pile of gold or even a large bill fold filled with cash

I don't have real estate

Houses and land that people want or admire

I don't have a nest egg of wealth when I retire

Those expensive cars and antiques are not mine

No inheritance that will give me a great fortune

I don't earn boo koo bucks like a lawyer or doctor or such

I haven't hit the lottery jackpot for millions

I live day to day and sometimes I am one paycheck away from empty

I feel great pride that I never want to hide

I give everything my personal best

I can always hope and dream for more

I have nothing the I.R.S. wants

The Government barely knows I exsist

I write with passion and deep desire

I learned years ago

Don't sit too close to the fire

OR you can get burned one time to many

I live life on the edge and dream with my mind the impossible

I watch others who have much more than me

I may be humble and sincere

Each night I go to sleep I have nothing to fear

      Micky Dee I am blessed with good health and I haven't found a store that sells that yet.It must be too expensive they won't carry it.So I am rich but I just can't cash it in.I must be a walking talking Fort Knox.

      I can summarize your hub in one line "A simple life is all I need". Sometimes money complicated life, although it is a necessity. Nice hub!
