Poetry: "Wasted Moments"

Wasted Moments

No one owes me a living

Time spent and squandered
Are NO One’s concern but MINE

Moments wasted on
                Misery and sadness

Moments pondering all the
                Would’ve, Could’ve, and Should’ve
No One Else’s

I’ll tell the truth and shame the devil
I’ve wasted moments of my life

A man left – boo hoo
I lost a job – wah!
Yes, life can get fucked up
It ain’t even fair at times
I still rage at the injustice – uh huh

I can only manage my mind
Waste my moments
My moments

I’m where I need to be
I choose to allow those lessons to wash over me

Bathe in my truth
Stand tall

No one else’s…

I choose to 
Listen for God in the wind!
