It is true no one told me about the way of life. Of course I was disciplined and learn many things in school, but the real way of life is something different. My poem.

No one told me about the way of life,

Of all the toil and strife.

Boldly, I tackled the days,

And found the answer in many ways.


I stood up to the hardship, and got through,

There were times when I had to start anew.

Down and out, not a penny in pocket,

Just the one important docket.


I was determined to go through life,

No matter what came my way.

Meet up with a good wife,

And try to make it stay.


But there are many things we do not know,

We have to move along slowly, and grow.

Learn what is right, and what is wrong,

Try to stay on a good road, stay strong.


Then a time will come, we''re no more,

The wind has taken us away, to some other shore.

But don't let that upset you, it's just a mystery,

Of life on earth, and all that should be.
