Now it is My Time

I live my life as I want now –

to jerks no longer bow.

I dealt with some to earn a dime,

but now it is my time.

Got aches and pains that come with age,

offset with lesser rage.

Not forced to do what I don’t want,

got long hair which I flaunt.

Write these rhymes because it’s fun,

complete them one by one.

Work because I’m in the mood,

but not to it am glued.

I am not rich but have enough,

to think my life not rough.

I worked hard to reach this spot,

andĀ grateful what I got.

I would not trade this point in life,

past struggles or the strife.

I will enjoy my life no doubt,

’til something big gives out.
