Used To Be

Used to be
            by Odin Roark

Use to be
He poured his own coffee
Clung a lot to the past

Used to be
He scored below average in school
But that was only grades

Used to be
He couldn’t afford to fill his tank
But that was just a car

Used to be
Low bank balance always cost him a fee
But that was only money

Used to be
His woman left his cup half empty
But that was about growing up

Used to be
His flesh ruled it all
But that was ‘cause his mind was asleep

Use to be
He poured his own coffee
But discovery tends to him now
“Your cup’s only half full”

“Yeah I know
Ain’t it beautiful”
