A Life Of An Ordinary Man - Poem by Timothy James Webster

Can one man live a life of ninety-three?
Encounter things that no one can see,
A trapped soul that cannot break free

Still remembered the Days of Fear
When the Japs attacked from the rear
With blasts thundering in my ear

Can one man live a life of ninety-three?
Sitting in a park with the same old tree
And rubbing that left sore knee

O, I long for a freedom song
Knowing that time will not stay long
And still living in a place called Hong Kong

Even if I look older
I am still young with wonders
Wallet filled with old pictures
Of me when I was younger

Staring at the moon and the stars and the sky
Feeling the breeze through my skin
Slowly let that feeling in
Feels like flying

Suddenly appeared a bright white light
The light shines like a golden ring
Through my blocked eyesight
An unforgettable image of the King

This is my final fight
To redeem my eternity rights
Can one man live a life of ninety-three?
Believe in Him and you will be free
