One Forty Seven and a Quarter Plus

Don’t let ’em tell you you’re old,

know that you’re young at heart,

and an old soul, that’s the goal.

Don’t let ’em tell you you’re a fool,

for daring to dream and imagine one part,

and someday is more than in school,

it is the wisdom of a fresh start.

A fool to believe that it can be better,

with the courage to smile in the storm,

who believes what they say in every letter,

and says what they mean in simple form.

If you are an old fool, you have a family who is really

behind you to remind you that imagination is vital,

seeking ever after, even if not happily, but ideally

as this is a no rewind recital.

Sit. Begin to breathe. This too shall. . .

Pass, Pass, Puff,

Is it enough to believe?
