My Life

Sometimes I hear a song playing on the radio it takes me back to a time of yesteryear.
When I had the whole world ahead of me. And plans as big as the sea.
I thought all those plans were going to be wrote in stone.
Little did I know what life had in store for me.
I can't say I haven't enjoyed the roads I have traveled.
I have lived many life's in this life time of mine.
But I can say I miss some of the roads I know I will never cross again.
I use to think all the time.
Don't know how I would get in so much trouble with all that thinking.
I have seen so much.
Learned so much and loved so hard.
I never knew how heart rendering this life could be.
Thank you God thru it all you loved me.
When I was young and starting out you would have never thought I would be the woman I grew into.
But in life if nothing else I have learned one does what one has to do.
And my conscious was the dictator of what I had to do.
I am sorry for the pain I have caused others.
I wish I could say that statement was not true.
That I have never caused pain.
I have seen first breaths being taken by new born babes.
I have seen the last breaths taken by those going home.
I have felt so loved and so alone.
Sometimes I have felt them both at the same time.
I have never felt the need to push myself or my opinions on another.
I have also never let people push theirselfs or their opinions on me.
I have always known right from wrong.
No matter what I decided to do I knew.
Now here I am with so much behind me.
Wondering what is left to be.
It reminds me of something I heard before.
The best is yet to come.
And with all the wisdom I have gained.
I know it will not come till I am ready to recieve.
I also know if I had of refused the pain.
My life would have not been the happy one I see.
