The people I have loved
Ewperiences I have cherished
Memories I have treasured.
Beliefs I have outgrown
Convictions I have lived by
Principles I have fought for.
Some incidents that have pained
The insights I have gained.
Risks that I have taken
Some facts that have been forsaken.
Sufferings that have seasoned me
Influences that have shaped me.
My unfulfilled desires
My haunting fears
My weaknesses and tears.
I recapture and relive
As I struggle in my strife
I cry in despair in hope I smile
I feel I am a connoisseur.........
..............contemplati ng life.
