    TERMINAL MAN
    >>>>>><<<<<<<

    As a boy,
    growing up was
    all I could think about.
    At age seven I wanted to be eight.

    Little did I know then
    the ravages of time...
    the consequence
    of getting older.

    As a young man,
    life was invigorating to say the least
    A popular song of the time exclaimed:

    "ain't no mountain high enough,
    ain't no river wide enough,
    ain't no valley low
    enough... to keep
    me from getting
    to you, babe".


    I took another song to heart
    sung by the Godfather of Soul
    which stated beyond any reasonable doubt:

    "This is a man's world,
    but it don't mean nothing
    without a woman or a girl".


    Yes sir,
    I was hell
    when I was well.

    Of course,
    there is a season for
    everything under the sun.
