Life Is Like A Tree

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

Our legs are like roots planted firm to withstand wind

Arms are like branches to hold the weight of things to come

Hands are like leaves to cover and provide shade

Fruit is like life that is provided by our living

So life is like a tree, if I could be a tree

The Many Ways

Monday, June 13th, 2011

I’ve been around, over and over,
Lived many ways, loud and unheard,
I’ve climbed many mountains, fell down many mountainsides,
Walked countless miles, caught countless appreciated rides.

I’ve crossed many rivers, crossed some many times,
Made plenty of dollars, earned plenty of dimes,
I’ve met a lot of people, made many friends,
Some I miss dearly, would love to see again.

Rode the rails many times, thanks Union Pacific,
Loved every loud clank, and the loud engines, to be specific,
I’ve had many good times, most good, some bad,
I’ve never had much but I’ve cherished all that I’ve had.

Some call me a drifter, a vagabond, even a bum,
Many appreciate my way of life, the haters go and they come,
The police always keep an eye on me,
Many wave hello and just smile at me.

So I don’t ever know where I’m going or even what I’m after,
I know I’ll stop one day, that ol’ train will cease to clatter.
But until then I guess I’ll keep the miles passin’,
The next town and adventure is the way of life I’m after.
