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

      Dim Flaxenwick Without your comments my heart would go unnoticed.Without your thoughts my heart would go lonely.Soon it too could disappear.Thanks for bringing life and emotion back to my healthy happy rapid beating heart.Have a day that will make you smile and chuckle from years to come.

      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!
