It seems today not to drink,

Is a commendable trait,

As is not smoking cigarettes,

Or do I, as often, smoke weed,

Without a job & such I have enough on my plate…


Its as well commendable not to have,

Run in with the law, in my old age,

Not like I had when I was much younger,

No advice have I to give, so I am not really a sage…


So far I’ve come,

I’ve added up the sum,

My life is not too bad,

Others have less & more,

Then why do I live my life,

With such a lack of self-confidence…

I think you are a sage of sorts and that's a good thing. Give yourself credit for your good works, you've beaten yourself up enough for the bad. Patrick

Just keep chipping away.
When you get a job and can just keep busy it will help.
Chip chip...

When it seems everything is going against us, it's hard to have that old self confidence we had in our younger years. But we are still the same person we were with all the attributes. Hang in buddy.
