Truly Live

I feel the need to truly live soon
once again in limbo caught in a rut
destiny down the way sings a new tune.

Upon a time, I stared dreamily at the moon
wishing on I knew not exactly what
I feel the need to truly live soon.

Though much too late I broke out of my cocoon
to my life struggle has been much
destiny down the way sings a new tune.

Zestful and to sadness I've become immune
connected with reality and fully in touch
I feel the need to truly live soon.

Finally liberated and naturally wary of loons
they ruined the best part of my days, but
destiny down the way sings a new tune.

A perpetual optimist still full of dreams and such
A determined realist ready to celebrate with balloons
I feel the need to truly live soon
destiny down the way sings a new tune.

    As a late bloomer myself, I believe (as you) that we need to make the most out of the time we have. Wonderful poem here. Thank-you for your very kind comment.

    Sad but a nice write but really is it ever to late? I don't believe that there is always a way it might be different but I believe all things are possible.
