Time Wasted
Author: Barbara Goodhew


Years of trying to figure out how to do things different.
Doing things different from how you been doing them is hard.

I should of spent my time working the weak side of my body.
Now that I know how to do most things a new way.
I'm working on my balance, walk and speech my way.
Fifteen years of learning new ways,
now learning my old ways all over again.


------- Author's Notes -------

I'm 61 now and its hard to teach an old dog new tricks lol.
But I will try,you never know.

Hey Barb

Wondered what happened to you. I know I'm one to talk, but I like your straight-to-the-point poems. Glad you're working on your balance.

Missed your humor too. Thanks for the read!
