mid life

Mid-life Crisis

Sometimes, its quite boring this life
But only for five minutes
Until the strife begins again
Then it's quite engrossing
The good and the bad and
What you should have had
It all comes back full circle
To this place TGIF and
Wind it up again
Tell some stories
Quaff some beers
Saturday morning headache
Take the kids to hockey
Will Tommy turn out Gretzky
The job stretching long ahead
And the marriage
Like a road on a map
Etched in folds that wear
And tear and dissolve into
Fragments with use
So do I change with years
Of care and become discarded
But then free and
That is where I begin
Again to venture
Where no one expected
Not even me.
