Swan song

1587.jpg

Two scores and five years ago,
I came in with a vision and heart.
Today I am old, weak and slow,
Yet I feel it is just the start.

Failures will come many times to greet,
Life may become at times hard to meet,
To Quit may seem like the only choice, but
Everything gets better, just be on your feet.

The road is steep, tiring and long,
With one way right one wrong,
Don't stop or change the lanes.
Fuel is a mind, which is strong.

Aim for respect not just for wealth,
Experience speaks, I have dealt.
Aim to be loved, aim to be an Idol,
And stop not till you have your health.

When you leave, be proud,
Thanking each one in the crowd.
Walk away when the time is right,
But while doing so keep your head bowed.

Two scores and five years ago,
I came in with a vision and heart.
Today I am old, weak and slow,
But the real journey is yet to start.
