Making the Cut

There comes a time in one's life,
When each of us have to stop and think>

If I were to stumble upon the Fountain of Youth,
Would I be bold enough to drink?

Throughout my life, I've done my best
To deserve a miracle or two,

But, NO, is God's answer to all I ask,
Don't know for sure, but I  bet....

Could this be God's way of telling me
I haven't made the Big Show Yet?

Thank you for your comment. It will keep me writing for awhile.

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
