King For A Day

by James Collins (author's profile)


King For A Day

O' how I miss freedom
The simple life
Waiting in a cashier's line
Places that normal people call pressure
What I'd do for the simple life again
Shopping down the vegetable row
Squeezing various kinds of fruits
And bagging nuts in plastic
I wouldn't be in any hurry
I'd savor the fresh smell
It would be a fun time
Reading the food facts on labels
Making good choices in what I eat
Being able to select real meat
And no soy products
I would be king for a day
Embracing freedoms

Great post, Mr. Collins!

Thank you for reminding me to slow down in life and appreciate the small things. It makes me feel guilty that I can enjoy those small luxuries and you cannot. I feel even worse knowing that most of the time I loathe going to the grocery store. >.<
