Someone Who Has Placed A Bet


I hope to have greater moments,
Than the ones that have come...
In my past that were done.

I hope I am mentally and physically able,
To seek adventure and not fear the unknown.
With an exploring of life and share what is shown.

I hope the Sun rises and on the horizon stays,
At least to allow me to acknowledge...
So many blessings came my way.

I hope one day to find companionship,
With someone who has awakened...
To appreciate honesty and life lived to be basic.

I hope the Sun rises and on the horizon stays,
At least to allow me to acknowledge...
So many blessings came my way.

I hope I am mentally and physically able,
To seek adventure and not fear the unknown.
With an exploring of life and share what is shown,
And I am mated with someone honest and basic.
Someone who has placed a bet to win and won,
Exactly what they see in me.

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
