Of All The Places Where I Have Been
Of all the places where I have been,
Looking back time and again.
Realizing that most of my days were crazy,
Many nights were very scary.
Most people could not handle what I have seen.
I never served time in prison.
Never experienced the horrors of war.
Never made a life or death decision.
Never won a singing contest before.
Now that I look back,
All that I have done was never really crazy.
Nothing that I have seen was really scary.
Most people would think that my life was a bore.
I just wanted to start a poem,
Claiming my life had been rough.
Have people believe that I was really tough.
I have nothing to be ashamed of in my life.
I could never really handle prison,
Would probably get captured in war.
When it came to making a life or death decision –
I would rather ride a wild boar.
