January 29, 1998 - July 6, 2020


so long

for so long Ive listened

hearing the words

and not understanding

the words


and now

at last

I know!


when Phil sings about

“just another day in paradise”

I know

as far as this world is aware

I live daily in a paradise

beyond the poorests dream


I have never had a care

for my next meal to eat

or a place to sleep

even when Mom and Dad almost lost it all

I never lacked a thing


Thank God!


I have never known hunger

cold, or fear of storm

I lead a life of bliss

while unthought others look on








and hungry
