Just As I Am
I realize that life is not black and white or good and bad, but rather somewhere in between.
These lines filled my thoughts in quandary wondering what kind of life it could have been.
I smile and sigh as i think about the good old days that passed.
Lived alone and far away, love alone for family clasp tightly in my heart.
I know not how much love i had...given them all away.
Left nothing much for me to spare and see me through my lonely day.
A sudden sadness filled my soul, as i sit alone and look through the wall.
I see emptiness despite of my happiness, i get no meaning from it all.
Life itself is amazing I know...its by thine hands it will trickle and glow.
Shall i tilt a bit and loosen up my soul?
Oh dear, time's ticking and i'd rather rev up my gear.
Life is short so i have to move along.
If anyone does notice and finally appreciate,
I'd be glad to know I exist and taken...
Simple and imperfect,
Just as I AM.
