I am at
The Biographical Crossroads
Of me life.
I see too well the handwriting on the page.

Maturity outpacing happiness
Decision outweighing action
Daily life souring limelight

Roles changing as family grows.
Health roulette, the hidden foe.
No longer the target audience,
Left behind as the wave of life roars onward
Pray only that life abandons me upon the shore of a pleasant desert isle

    Wow -- this is so strong, Michael, so poignant! One might also have written, "Indecision outweighing action." I've felt some of these things, and observed a friend living many of them. Hope that you're winning your health struggle! I'm wiped out with allergies, but it's easier than what you're facing, I'll bet ...
