I'm Not An Antique...I Only Feel That Way !
By ~Marge Tindal~ 1999

Browsing through the antique shop,
I thought it very strange.
Someday upon these very shelves,
my life they'll re-arrange.

All I am, or ever was
now placed upon a shelf.
If I was the curious shopper ...
I'd surely buy myself.

My photograph, my cameo,
or my Captain Marvel ring ...
I hope someone will exclaim,
"I can't live without that damned thing."

All the treasures that we gather,
as through this life we roam,
I hope someone likes me well enough ...
to buy me and take me home !

This was well done, kind of sad though. What legacy do we leave behind on the shelf of our life?

Thank you, Martie, Watcher and Stuart.
And welcome, Stuart.
I can't go to an antique shop without walking away with someone else's portrait !
Kind of reminds me to ~*Smile*~ when someone takes my picture. We never know whose walls we'll someday grace.

Yes, very thought provoking. I never had thought of my 'things' being on a shelf someday. But I guess someday they just might be! I hope somebody wants them! Another good one, Marge!
