Now & Then


Poem Commentary

I wrote this one when I was in the hospital. I was reflecting on everything I have done and haven't done to and for my family and everyone around me.

Now & Then

Now and then I always wonder what I would turn out to be
If you and the family never believed in me
Times have been tough we all know that road all to well
if only life were certain and planned I'd say "that would be swell"

Yet, life takes its turns for the worst and sometimes for the best
I can't tell you what life holds, God can tell you the rest
I haven't been the best son, family member, or person for a great time
My life constantly in a bind

For some reason I've changed into something unpredictable
All the bad thing's I've done are unforgettable
With your love and courage I somehow strive to live another day
yeah this is mushy but, it surely doesn't make me gay

I just don't know where I'd be without all of you behind me
I know but I'll just let that be
Hopefully that let you inside my emotions just enough to show I truly care
Gotta get going back to my chair

So I'll see you again if not soon
Gotta go they're playing my tune!
I'm really tired so I'm off to sleep
Where all the cars go Beep, Beep, Beep!
