Me!

By: Joe Attanasio

 

 

 

I have seen so much with these eyes

This has made me very wise

I have been to many places

Met people of all the races

 

I have slept under a bridge

Cold as hell, like a fridge

I was in the army

It was truly smarmy

 

I dropped out of school

I thought I was so cool

I later went back to school

I was no fool

 

I lost a job because she said

She stay with me here in bed

I have passed out drunk before

Woke up on the floor

 

I have taken drugs

Hung out with thugs

Hitchhiked across the land

No cash in hand

 

I have had many a girl

Always willing to give it a whirl

I have sleep with whores

Just sex, behind closed doors

 

I have lived in many a big city

Some were even pretty

Home was where I hung my hat

An apartment, house or just a flat

 

I have seen the inside of a jail

But I got out, I made bail

I have felt so all alone

Stripped of warmth, cold to the bone

 

I have never been rich with money

But my heart is rich and sunny

I have known pain

But happiness always reins

 

I have lived a rich life

I enjoy a wonderful wife

I grew up with much love

Of me, my parents were proud of

 

So when I write my poems

Or stories I drive home

Thoughts from things I’ve known

Life experience of my own

 

I want to share with you

Thoughts that brought me threw

I hope my poems inspire

You to grasp what you desire!
