This is me starting to write this poem.
I'll put down my thoughts, see where they roam.
Amid my past and future dreams.
We'll see if it's all that it seems.
Adrift along life's many pathways.
It's here and now that always stays.
What can be said for gaining knowledge?
The kind not taught in any college.
We're left to figure day by day.
And pray to God we find our way.
We drink our coffee, take a pill.
Wake and sleep and wonder still.
We watch our tv's grow each year.
Expanding joy and love and fear.
Reality's reality is getting tricky.
And only some can afford to be picky.
We get in gear and keep on moving.
As if a mystery we are proving.
It's not about solving the puzzle.
But rather, coherently rhyming with guzzle or muzzle. :)
