Five dozen or so
trips around the sun
thought I’d know by now
that I’d learn when to run
or that it’s wiser not
to have too much fun
but at least I clean up
the mess when I’m done

Some think I look angry
others say amused
it’s just the sadness of one
without much left to lose
who’s learned that blue
comes in infinite hues
who doesn’t have many
tools left to use

When current circumstances
are getting me down
I think about all
of those trips around
and remember that if
I keep my feet on the ground
what seems lost now
might again be found
