The Life That I Have Led

The Life That I Have Led

written by: Ann Christine Tabaka



I have to stop doing what I am doing,
or I won’t get anything done.

Staring off to distant dreams
beyond a setting sun.

Horizon goes on forever,
I shall not meet its end.

I will never find the morning,
though I continue to pretend.

A decision out of nowhere
has filled my idle head.

I know someday I shall rue
the life that I have led.
