Have to change … have to try,
This way of living, is no way to die.
Do it for me, do it for them …
Getting rid of old habits – must try again!
Cluttered life … complex thoughts,
Body can’t stand it … now falling apart.
The older I get, the sooner to start,
It’s a race to the finish, towards living as art.
An ‘all or nothing’ attitude, got me this state,
The only way, now, to make a clean break?
A leaf from the past … just one more time,
Then drop it forever – my plan of mine.
“Keep it to yourself” … some may say,
Seems like vanity, going this way.
Friends, just like a ‘12-step’ plan,
Setting such goals, must be so grand!
I’ll go one better (my way so true!),
By this June 10th, I’ll report back to you.
With so much at stake and so much to lose,
God help me when it’s over – the right way to choose!
But promises made … now must be kept,
My love ones surround me … my safety net!
