by James Zealy
Half a life, half a century,
Half the energy, half the joy,
Full of fight, Full of knowledge,
Full of life, full of truth,
Half the complaints, half the anger,
Half the hate, half the waste,
Full of compassion, full of realization,
Full of anxiety, full of desire,
Half the power, half the drive,
Half the passion, half the expectations,
Is it half full or half empty?
Its the same meaning,
A difference in attitude,
Half of something,
Is more than full of nothing,
Life is a chance,
Not always endowed with romance.
Author's Note: A jaded response to being over 50. Life ain't what we thought at 20.
