In this life

By JR Owens ©

In this life that I have wasted,

In the sweet nectars I have tasted

I fought for freedom from within,

To be free from what I could have been?

 

While material wealth escaped me,

And the sun set too soon upon me,

I never felt without,

Though, I lived a life of doubt.

 

But this doubt has dimmed in spirit

Though, it will not let me near it,

And, I’m far removed from this:

All the things I might have missed.
