What is Life?
Wide eyed dreams never set sail;
blown like dust by gusts that wail.
But my bitterness ended,
once the wind was befriended.
Call me a bum and a drifter.
Some folks think I’m a grifter,
on a slow job from the cops,
cause my homes are mere pit stops
I go where the zephyrs lead me.
My laissez faire life’s freed me.
My goals are achieved each day;
seeing sunrise by the bay.
My dreams come true every night;
gazing at stars and twilight.
But the biggest change yet trod,
is getting closer to God.
