i am,all that i am

 



i have come,

to the conclusion,

that i am all,

i`ll ever be.

 

i will never ,

feel my youth again,

but only in my dreams,

i am free.

 

a man ,

bearing,

a lot of,

broken dreams.

 

i always thought that,

 i would conquer the world,

but now i realize ,it has conquered me,

that it has conquered me...

Hey Ron, a very heartfelt

Hey Ron, a very heartfelt realization 

and truthfully honest!

 

Success comes from failures 

What makes a man truly

successful is that he never truly

gives up!!

 

You don't have to be rich 

just wealthy in the soul

Loss and disappointment

can get you down, but

never let it beat you!!!

I have had to struggle with

I have had to struggle with that quite a bit lately.  The novelist Robert Waller said something like---and I am not quoting precisely---"the old dreams were good dreams, they just didn't work out."  I think that is a great concept.  My niche now is not what I thought, in my youth, that it would be, but it is mine, and I have made my peace with it.  Sorry to be so verbose.
