We all will have them eventually. Some sooner than others, especially if we are too foolish.

Luther Vandros 53years old.
(had a stroke that almost made him fold.)

Barry White
(died and left us one night.) 

And scores of others.
I can't remember all of my fellow human brothers,
but this ones about yours truly,
who's time is closing in duely.

I've wasted to much time on foolishness,
and a lot of my lfe was somewhat of a mess.


I changed,
and rearranged,
my position.
So I could have a better disposition.
Started controlling the negative traits,
which improved my relates.
This was about twenty years ago,
and since then I did grow,
to be a more sensible person.
One who doesn't react unless there's a good reason.

I'm 53 years old,
I figure I'm in my last good days before I began to fold.

I've been enjoying life for quite awhile,
because I learned the value of happiness and the smile.

The value of postivity,
as opposed to negativity,
which certainly improved my activity,
and enhancing my longevity.

I enjoy life with less hangups,
and a whole lot less f-ups.
