This poem is something that I think a lot of people can relate to.

This is The Story of my life

when I was 1, I fell in the mud

when I was 2, I got my first bruise

when I was 3, I fell out of a tree

when I was 4, I walked into a door

when I was 5, I played with a knife (stiches were involved)

when I was 6, I got kicked in the head (more stiches were involved)

when I was 7, I got beaten up by a kid named Kevin

when I was 9, I walked into a street sign

when I was 10, I had to get stiches in my chin (don't ask why)

when I was 11, I ran into Kevin and I beat him up for revenge because even though he was in a wheelchair from a car accident he could never recover from, I just couldn't resist

when I was 12, I told someone to go to hell

when I was 13, I made someone mad and they punched out three of my teeth

when I was 14, I swam in my friends pool and swallowed to much chlorine

when I was 19, I got arrested for public fighting

when I was 25, I was introduced to my wife and she gave birth twice

when I was 27, I got sued by Kevin

when I was 28, I lost a job because I got up too late

when I was 30, My kids told me that I looked nerdy

when I was 34, I walked into another door

when I was 39, I tripped over a tree vine

when I was 47, I became best friends with Kevin

when I was 55, I felt like I was towards the end of my life

when I was 56, I met my grandkids

when I was 62, I caught the flu

when I was 76, I watched my grandkids grow up before my eyes

when I was 84, A doctor told me I would live no more

when I was 85, I died as a happy man who lived a great life

and I'm not afraid to live it twice

because my last words were "Man, what a ride"

and that my friends

is The Story of My Life
