The money wasn’t everything. Okay, who was he trying to fool.
Really it was all about the money, but he didn’t have to admit it.
Under normal circumstances he wouldn’t have to work a day in his life.
Such was the life of a fund baby. all thanks to grandma.
That was before he put his faith in his lawyer and that prenup agreement.
Giving thanks is an everyday event
Really it should be moment to moment
At least we set a day aside to remind us to do so
Tempering the hectic pace of life
Enabling friends and family a moment to pause
For every day is truly a gift, each sunrise a blessing
Until that sun doesn’t rise for you anymore
Long may you live and be …
Gifts of food and shelter were always welcome
I have been homeless for three years now
Vying for odd jobs and even odder places to sleep
Every day is a lesson in patience, humility, and humiliation
Today was no exception, even with the holiday
Have some breakfast at the shelter before heading out
Asking for loose change while finding recyclables
Now I sit on this bench wondering where my next day will lead
Knowing that I have little say in the matter
Still thankful for just being alive
