    That's the Story of My Life

    When I was only three years old
    the day I decided to exlore the world.

    Every summer evening
    he would walk with me down the block.

    Our destination--a tiny grocery store.
    Every neighborhood had one.

    There I was introduced to popcicles.
    and other goodies sweet enough to rot your teeth.

    Wouldn't you know it!


    When I was a spirited five,
    my family went to a family reunion in Omaha.

    While there I sipped
    from a fountain in the park and contracted polio.

    C'est la vie!

    Sometimes our lives are written out beforehand........although the story may have some negativity in it........we have to smile and move on to the next chapter...........Smiles Mandi..................g

    Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.
