Watching the Watchers

written by: RayFed

@MrRayFed

 

There's a place inside my heart, where reside my ego and my Id.

When my soul's laid open bare for all to see.

It's where I find the inner me is laughing de tout coeur.

And where my one true self is hid.

 

I did not intend to find so fine a place such as this is,

and these walls took quite a lengthy time to build.

And I find that in my mind I have everlasting time,

emotionally, to run far and wide afield.

 

So while you sit there and enjoy a most amusing look,

at what you must assume myself to be.

I'm there to, just slightly over, looking across your right hand shoulder,

watching you, enjoying watching me.

I've always been a jack of all trades. I've been a poet, author, social commentator, comedian, online gamer, pod cast host, and Youtuber. I've had a class A license to drive semi truck over the road. I've worked as a chef, manager and all kitchen positions in hundreds of restaurants over the years. I've traveled in Mexico, Canada and through 37 of the 50 states. I've been a volunteer firefighter in Florida, where I grew up. I've fished the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and saw the far distant coast line of Cuba before its recent opening to the west. I've married, had 4 kids, divorced, got CKD stage 6 (end stage renal failure) Survived a stroke, mild heart attack, MRSA, blood clots and now chronic heart failure. Fully disabled and home bound, the internet is my social outlet, and window on the world. I go to dialysis three times a week, I watch movies, play video games and chat with people on social media. Writing is my catharsis for a life that is now spent measuring the time I have left, less the tomorrows that may never be.
