Not wishing for dead.

At my age I don't look
too far ahead
I try to enjoy every second
minute and hour instead
The doctor has put me in
the highrisk category
Almost all men have a
highrisk story
with hardly any glory
Some sitting around
feeling sorry
wishing they'd die in a hurry
Whether they're in the
highrisk category or not
life can still be steaming hot
especially for those who
evily plot
Some young fools even
get shot
Living in a highrisk place
can keep a frown on
ones face
Doing dumb and stupid things
even for queens and kings
can down an eagle with wings

I watch smokers and drinkers
eyes all red popped out and
Some motorist drive like they
have a death wish
and with the oil disaster we
may end up with oil in our fish
Old processed dianosaur
also served on a dish

Whether I have a second or
minute left to live
my plans are to love and forgive
which may end up killing me away
because of the bull crap decay
same fools wishing I'd pass this day
Still backing stabbing trying to
make me pay
However highrisk category or not
I'm a strong man here to stay

The best way to live is to do whatever that makes you happy. Whenever I'm ready to die, I'll die a happy person.

Keep living Friend.
