Don't Wanna Claim It

Dang heart flutters, clutching at me...
little hard to catch my breath, these days
been running hard, feeling like I done gone
and run the marathon without training
They trying to tell me ... That I'm
Under the weather again... humpf.
They are telling me 
of all people -- to take it easy...
they don't know me to well, do they ~
Never been much on complaining...
that takes too much energy...
Although it seems that
My body is a wee bit tired lately,
needing a little rest that's all...  
too tell the truth
I ain't 'bout ta claim nobody's illness
Not today nor any t'other
I'm standing here for the third time
they say three's a charm... hey--hey Now!
Fat lady sing if you must,  but just you know
I ain't going no where, shoot, if the tune be right...
I might just sang along with you... 
play me that song sweet music man ~
Tell 'em all I'm still striving to do the best I can...
See I got a whole lot more living to do
and I ain't gonna claim that ticket, 
 No, I don't wanna cash it all in -- just yet...

    Excellent Write ... (smile) I chuckled and agreed right along with you on this one Adell (as they say go gracefully into that good night - well, that's the last option, I'll take, fighting tooth and nail (LOL) and then, only then, when I can't move anymore, I'll gain some more pounds and sing (smile) ... Your Friend, MoonBee

    Great write, Adell! I agree, we give power to things with our words! Let's make sure we only give power to the positive! Hugs, and keep on taking care! Donna
