Wrong Life

When we were young we were so sure.......We would grow up and be rich not poor...So where did we go wrong in lifes scheme.....Our being rich is still just a dream......Now i am a poor old weary on my own...In a house thats not a home....No wife no childrens laughter...No living happily ever after....With a heart thats stuggling to cope...Keeping alive this old dope... In a body full of pain...To old to proud to complain....I say complain but to whom....There is only me and the tv in the room....So i talk to the walls at least they listen to my woe...And each day poorer and older i grow.........jw
