.          BUCKET  LIST 
Early dawn I find myself, 
wondering about my health. 
Journey, through the morning mist, 
overwhelmed about the reason I exist. 
Without thinking of my past, 
worried my future will not last. 
All my life I have reminisce, 
at what age to start my BUCKET LIST? 
First, I will work on getting my tickets dismiss. 
Then I will take a trip down to the dentist. 
Call up them guys who got me piss, 
punch them one by one, with my fist. 
I do not wannabe be an old geezer skydiving. 
I want to live my old age surviving. 
I might be brave enough to climb a mountain, 
maybe I will bungee off the Niagara fountain.
Checked out that bump that everyone thinks is a cyst. 
It will be to late, if the army wants me to enlist. 
If I want to travel far,  
on my list I will add a brand new car. 
I will enjoy eating all the fried food, I resist 
even if it brings me closer on DEATH’S LIST. 
Close the door to my demons who at once preexist. 
Before my family thinks, I need another exorcist. 
Thinking how I never did any of the above got me piss.
I will just wait another 35 years to start another BUCKET LIST.

    Two summers ago I sat by the beach and wrote a bucket list. It only had three items on it, not because I did it all, but because I narrowed it down to the things that mattered most. Good luck with your list, and hope your hourglass stays nice and full. Love, Vie.

    Naw we should "Just say YES!" and go do it! That's what I did. Said "good bye" to safety (I do have a small net LOL my ex husband still helps a wonderful reliable GOOD man) And I started figuring out exactly what I want to do and DOING IT. No one now to blame if I don't! Thanks for always being a nice supporter PD! Light & Love
