Wonderful Horrible Life

It’s been a wild ride.


My wonderful horrible life

Has been blessed and cursed

All at once

The life less ordinary

Has shown me every kindness

And every possible hardship

Sometimes I wished it would end

And sometimes I wished it would never end

As wild and painful as it’s been

I wouldn’t trade it for the world

I wouldn’t want to be

Anyone else

I confess no regrets as I progress

Because everything has led

To this very moment

Where things are getting better

Each and every day

And I don’t know how high

This soul of mine will soar

In the days, weeks, months and years ahead

Or if I’ll crash and burn

But be thankful for

The wisdom it brings

The hard times

The time of ashes

The rabid dogs from hell

Are over and done with

And I am blessed with a second chance

To make something special

Of this fragile and fleeting time on earth

It’s been remarkable the amount and the intensity of the highs and lows I’ve experienced in life. I’ve gone from Paris to prison from punk rock to purgatory and from the psych ward to perfect mental health.

I could have easily died before or during my jail time so I consider myself extremely lucky to have a second chance at life, many never see the end of the hard times.

It’s been a wild ride.
