    I have grown...maturely
    i have matured...gracefully
    i have seen the lack of respect
    in how the young ones act
    and reacted...distastefully

    ~ My apology ~

    i have grown in my views
    viewed many things...old and new
    i have given opinions where opinions weren't wanted
    i have explored the soul of the blues

    ~ Give me jazz, everyday ~

    i have grown more patient
    patiently, i have waited
    ...for hopes and dreams
    to realize their plane of existence isn't fated
    in a reality unlike mine

    so, i decline the offer
    to be demure in my proffer
    of day-after-day
    when my rhyme-scheme says
    it's time for the laughter...to start

    the seasons have blossomed
    my petal stands true...and tall
    no wilting wanes, or waning limbs
    to stem the tide of my daily whims

    my season has come
    i am
    O
    N
    E
    With me​

    Sir Baller...

    for me this verse stood out the most.
    I hope this isn't a sour note, but with an increase of
    commonly senior ailments plaguing some middle age and
    even younger people, this piece speaks of wonderful blessings.

    Also, speaking from the perspective of a person not far behind you on the road
    to “fifty-one years plus one day" this piece gives a sense of,
    its all good and life is what we make it.

    Its always good to read you!

    Maddsistahlylove!

    all you old heads know what i'm talking 'bout...

    but for the younger ones...LIFE is a wonderful thing...the BLESSINGS HE bestows on you, EVERYDAY, is a joy in and of themselves, but to be able to appreciate LIFE...to live day by day without the constant struggles of "who's coming after me next," that the streets leave you with, is awesome. YOUNG ONES. think about the LOVE the world has to offer you...the BLESSINGS GOD has in store for you...the SUPPORT family and friends will shower upon you...when you're living righteously. AMAZING.:)

    fifty-one years plus one day. CATCH ME IF YOU CAN.:)

    THANKS poets

    let the river flow.
