Shalom Freedman (Troy New York)
How Much Longer Will God Give Me?
How much longer will God give me?
How much more time to do the one thing
That makes me feel most alive?
More frail and older now I continue still
But when will it end?
I tell myself to be stronger and more disciplined
More careful, wiser-
But even if I do the best I can
It will end-
And one day I will never begin again
A new line a new page a new poem.
