Somewhere in this stack of life,

I made a list and checked it twice.

It was a list of things to get done,

A so called ‘New Year Resolution’.

I sat and added thing after thing,

DeathtoStock_Wired3Stuff to change, the new to bring.

The list was long and full of hope,

A lot more awesome, a little less dope.

I held my list up high and cried,

“I’ll do it this year, that’s no lie!”

Then placed it down and started to dance,

This year my life was not left to chance.

When I stopped, the list was not found,

It must have blown away while I danced around.

A sad look found its way to my face,

I slouched my shoulder, slowed my pace.

Then a grand thought occurred to me,

“Who needs resolutions? After all, they’re silly.”

I'm older than I think I am and younger than I feel. I'm stuck in the 80's but relevant to today (oh I hope that last part is true). I think I am more of an enigma than I really am, but somehow still confound those who try to figure me out (or they just look at me weird, so I infer that). And I really hate my first name. Husband, father, Navy Vet, UCF graduate, cat owner (translate.. slave), wannabe writer, and all around big kid who is stuck in an adult world. Overall, I just... um.. something to something, blah blah blah. And that's all I got to say about that.
