Life in Perspective



Hidden in the closet

is the library of my life

filled with stories

of dreams and strife


Starting at age five

an antagonist inside me

lies stories of monsters

telling me to flee


The teenage years

wearing a back brace

filled with ridicule

and heartache


Approaching mid thirties

will life begin to change

new opportunities

living within a comfortable range


Late forties

love has found me at last

he is my better half

having a blast


Mid fifties

death took my love

searching for answers

looking to God above


The future is perfect

living in the moment each day

there is always hope

it never goes away


The perfect moment

perceived as a future event

 composed of the present

as we live in the moment
