Started Out Life As A Child

Written by: Jack Ellison

Started out life as a child An amazing revelation for sure Became a teenager, make no excuses Those teenage years were a blur Not as wild as one might think More controlled than some of my peers My whole life with all its unknowns Still had a gazillion fears My oh my, how the time flies Seems I'm not going to live forever Look in the mirror each morning and think I once looked a whole lot better Such is life, shouldn't expect any more Don't deserve anything special Try as we might to delay life's journey For our destiny we must settle When the time comes, we take a look back Feel we did the best that we could Tried real hard to be a model citizen All in all it turned out damn good © Jack Ellison 2013
