All of life is a captivating mystery
Our birth, our growth, our destiny
What makes me, me? What makes you, you?
What drives and passions should we pursue?
I have grown old and carry many memories
Recollections to keep, both good and bad
Some cause me joy and others make me sad
But with each came a lesson for me to learn
The irony that comes with each of these memoirs
They are all now history and cannot be undone
What’s lost is lost and what’s won is won
I must learn from these and simply live on
