One More Year Old Feels Like Ten

One More Year Old Feels Like Ten

by: Ronovan

 One Candle

One more year older

This last one felt like ten

I wonder why I go through it

Was it punishment for a sin

 

Yeah, I know, don’t worry

I’m just talking out loud

I know the good Lord don’t do that

He done took him up in a cloud

 

But still I don’t mind asking

Why, why did all of this happen

A year of my life has done gone

And a steady tap on the brain keeps tappin’

 

You would think I would get used to it

Waking without a solitary clue

But how do you grow accustom

To something that every day is new to you

 

Hmm . . . Yeah, I know it’s all good

I got my health and home and something

Haha, the health is the something

That I’m certain must be the crunching

 

One more year older

The next will feel like ten

I know it was the Enemy

That tries to drag me into the den

 

I must have been on the right track

Cause the Enemy don’t worry with those

That are already with him

He worries about those who are his foes

 

And to that I say Amen

  1. I can identify all too well with your sentiment. “What matters most is how well you walk through the fire,” says Bukowski. I think it’s true. Moreover, scars heal tougher than the delicate skin once wounded. Happy birthday. xoxoxo P.S. I would absolutely love to hear these lyrical words paired with a steel guitar. 😉

  2. 😦 my face and heart frowns in sadness that you have written. But happy birth day anyway.
    Maybe one day it will all come back to you crystal clear and you will know why things had to be this way.
