Where Am I............

You’d reached a stage in your life were decisions were to be made
Ill friends that surround you
Were recieving invitations from the grave
You’d achieved a lot through brains and brawn
And decided to call it a day
Not to follow down a path
Without having the last word to say
So you buy a four by four already kitted out
And steer your lonely self into a direction
To enthuse your joyous shout
No more long night shifts
Of seeing pain after pain
You’ve developed a toughness
But it’s journey is your gain
Off you go to see the land
All five foot two of you
Explore horizons that command
An unselfish point of view
Seek the streams valleys and forests
And all the beaches too
So you may cleanse your very soul
Too refresh it brand new
Wake up to new dawn
Everywhere you go
Strike a yarn with the locals
To know what seeds to sew
Commit yourself fully
To a dream from long ago
So you may have truly lived
The life you needed to know.....

Actually Tioga County is a government job. I worked 20 years clerical positions at the Social Services Dept. (Welfare) and then as a secretary for the Tioga County Public Health Nurses Dept. Then retired with pension. Hard mental and emotional work but not physical
