I’ve always known I was a child
Polite and kind, ne’er rude or wild
Perhaps that is the reason why
My passive nature gets me by.
I wish that I could gather strength
Pursue my dreams to greater length
What is it folks are fighting for
To curry favor, change decor ?
Now I have traveled very far
Across the seas, both ship and shore
My heart has weathered many storms
And travesties beyond the norm !
My curly hair that used to be
Has now begun deserting me
It is not washing down the drain
Just tired curling up again.
While fate has opened every door
To follow through or settle score
I wonder what may soon occur
And to what power I must defer ?
The hours too fast are speeding by
All clouded with both tears and sigh
Oh gracious Lord now hear my plea
My hope is to abide with Thee !
