My Life In a Nutshell

I (That's just another word for me.)

I tried to reason with myself today.
I lost.
Reason won.

I didn't give you a fair chance to run before you fell in love with me.
By the way, why did you fall in love with me?
Or did you trip over the last heart you broke and land in my arms?

I saw the truth today.
It wasn't pretty.

Yesterday I had a dream.
You lost me.
I found me.

The world use to look so dim.
Oh wait, there's the light switch.
Damn, the light just burned out!

The future looks so bright.
No wait, that's just car headlights.
I think I died and went to...

Ah crap!
Not you again.
Weren't you here last year?

I just started a new lease on life.
My credit score is above average.
Oops! I just read it backwards.

My mom use to say: Be whatever you want.
Mom I want to be adopted, just kidding.
My mom said: I want to be taken serious, just not too serious.

I wish I knew.
That's it, I just wish I knew.
Well that and many other things.

Next year things are going to be different, you'll see.
The following year it was.
I said the same crap in a new year.

Sometimes I touch myself.
No not there!
I just touch myself to make sure I'm still here.

Some days are better than others.
I don't know if this is really true, but it gets me through my day.
By the way yesterday sucked!

This is just a brief observation of my life.
Or maybe this is a brief observation of many people.

If you took this too serious than you've missed the point.

The image used belongs to me.
I just never posted it before, until now.

Don't change your life...unless you want to.

These image based poems can be very misleading.
I'm pretty sure I'll post a larger version of the photo later this weekend.

I hope you like it.
Thank you for the views, faves, and comments.:heart:
