    My Season Has Come

    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 wane, or waning limbs
    To stem the tide of my daily whims

    My season has come
    I am
    O
    N
    E
    With me

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY...TO ME.:)

    'tis the reason that old seasoned friends continue to wake each day--for the happiness each moment of friendship brings...and the love that binds good friends together. THANK YOU, my friend.

    life is good.

    ahhh...the sweetness of a well-balanced mind.:) there are too few of "US" to keep the world sane...but far be it from us to shirk our responsibility. HAPPY (UPCOMING) BIRTHDAY, my friend.:) enjoy the wonders of waking each morning...knowing that you've been blessed by the touch of God's love...one mo' 'gin.

    THANK YOU.
