LEGAL

LEGAL

A Poem by M.Babu
"

How long have YOU been Legal? Anything to show for it?

"






















Been Legal one minute;

Got my head in a knot.

Jubilation, excitement

And plans to be sought!

Been Legal one day;

All the glee’s wearing off.

But still there’s tomorrow,

So tonight I won’t scoff!

 

Been Legal one month;

Got my I.D. too!

Though that picture

of me,

I never will zoom.

Been Legal one year;

Not much change from

the last.

But more responsibility,

On me others trust.

 

Wow!!

Been Legal 10 years.

It’s been that long?

Cause all I’ve achieved

Couldn’t fill a single song.

I’ll get to my dreams,

This time I’m serious!

Now I’ve got bills,

And a fiancé that’s tedious.

 

Been legal 50 years!

Can’t help but chuck a grin.

It’s been quite a journey.

I wouldn’t change a thing!

A life in a short poem, still you manage to say a lot. though I still wonder if I would change some decisions of my life, if I live it all over again..got me thinking, nice one.

I like the story in this poem. I like how you took me on a journey in a life. I'm 52 years old. I look back and wonder would I do the same again. A outstanding poem. I like the positive ending. You can write a good tale.
