So Far – Day Eighteen

My life has never been so wild
Not since I was a little child.
When life seemed so carefree
And everyone around me was mild.
 
But so anymore,
Life now sometimes is a chore.
I wonder when this became me
And when I became such a bore.
 
Not all days seem like this;
I’m glad or else I know I’d miss
The joy and laughter that is all around
And never leaves me in a mist.
 
My life has come real far
From when I could not drive a car,
I know that there is more in store
And that leaves me happiness that cannot mar.

I’ve also felt kind of contemplative this morning. It’s been slow and quiet and I’ve loved it.
