I'm A Year Away

I'm a year away from dread
pulling needle and thread
will I walk or will I run fast
way back when to my past
driving down the road blind
intuition saving my behind
officer's giving me warnings
into early hours of mornings
before new laws on drinking
my brain in lapse of thinking
caged by simple knowledge
in youth just a playful pledge
given all that I know of today
youth rides on cheerful play

Tomorrow I will again disrupt
years of my youth to corrupt
for places I've been and seen
seem to look extremely keen
I followed them for many year
each Birthday's another tear
in a book of vast experiences
I open up pages of incidences
memories flash flickers eyes
as in the days I win the prize
Gold and silver never to claim
locked treasure chest to blame
life holds in the balance my key
to never let go as long as I'm free.

Happy Birthday, Gloria! 21 was a great year, wasn't it? In fact it was so great, I've decided to stay there forever! LOL

Hello everyone, it's a wonderful day and I would love you all to enjoy my happiness so here's a dose>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Somehow I have been put on a natural high
or maybe it's a Passions high whatever it's soaring and so am I, this smile is stuck and I feel I could climb the highest mountain alone and the whole world would be in my vision. All right I'm done glorifying my mood, I'd like to thank all of you for your Happy wishes I guess they worked, now I never said anything about 21, I wondered if I might run back to those days of freedom, I guess the drinking part gave the idea of 21, well, back in my day it was 18 when it was legal to drink, but my experiences came at 17, was I bad or what...LOL I was just a teen living life a little risky that's all. Anyway if I could go back I think that would be the year, but there's no going back so I am gonna make 21, I mean 39 the best year I possibly can and I am so happy to be sharing it with all of you here.
