LATE DEVELOPER

Crawling around
came naturally to me
I kept it up for several years
then went straight past walking
into running

Finally though
I did get around to thinking
that took longest of all
everybody seemed against it

Looking back today
I realise
I've been lucky
to get as far as I have

So I believe I'm ready,
willing and adjusted now
to start crawling again

Finally though, now that you developed I would not go backwards, but forwards always. Don't loook back too often, it is not wise.

Quite entertaining and engaging. You obviously have a rare wit. I enjoyed the self-portrait you painted with your words. Nicely done. Thanks for sharing.

Well said. Thinking is not a strong suite in the human condition. That's why there are so many therapists.
