Runing On Empty - Poem by Aldo Kraas

I am running on empty like a car
I hardly stay home anymore
I am always on the go
I don’t have the time for nothing else, because I am always busy
I go to school, and by the time I get home
I have my supper and go to bed
The night is long, and the day is short
Life has to go on
I enjoy going to school
I never learned so much in all the years I was in school
I had accomplished so much in so little time
I am proud of myself
I feel so tired lately; I don’t get enough sleep anymore
I don’t want to think about my past, because it is gone, and I can’t Change it
I had failed so many times in my past life
Sometimes I don’t even know if I am coming or going
Time moves on
And every year I get older and wiser

    I found it Aldo and yes it is different, it is so much more detailed than mine...I choose to just focus on the 'Emotional' part of me as empty as in spent, or all used up, nothing left to give.
    This is good, and we all make mistakes, you are not alone on that part in here....marci. :) (Report) Reply
