On My 86th Birthday

My 86th Birthday

Another Birthday…another year
They seem to be coming
Much faster I fear!
The Sands of time are flowing
Spring and Summer have run their course
Fall has shed her brilliant leaves
Winter’s fury has no remorse

The years fly by so quickly
The Bird of Youth has flown away
Our springs were squandered blithely
As have our summer’s play
Autumn’s sun is fading
A little more each day
An early frost reminds us
Winter is on the way

Winter is upon us
Ledgers to be read
How can we rewrite the wrongs
And repair them before we’re dead?
Will we look back upon our seasons
Spent with nary a thought
Or know that we were mindful
Of the lessons we were taught

The winter of our birthdays
Should be cherished all the more
For we never know how many
We might have in store
The hands of time keep ticking
Always softly…never bold
One day the bells will ring
Will we be ready when they toll?

Alpha


Date: Mon, Nov 30 2015 at 7:44 PM

I'm the Alpha
You the Omega 
I'm Alpha 
You Beta
Call me Zeta
I Move like the Gammas
Thetas
I'm Sega
This the Genesis Theater
Playing my Sega on Saturn
While my dreamscast on the plasma 
They call me the great one I was born great
I was born from fate
Destiny child Birthed
In this vile curse
West Nile style verse 
thought y'all Nu
Mu the Uno Yall Cero
Born on the cuatro, Cero, dos
On my upper echelon fly like the Delta Epsilon
My flow Alumni I'm a Star like Sigma Ksi my Chi my Key & Enigma Energy of Super Saiyan 3 Chi & Ki
Inside this Optimus Prime
