Simply Grateful

Simply Grateful

I could sit here in this pendulum hammock

Staring at the sky

I could sit down with my profound philosophy books

Asking the questions why

I could sit in front of my television screen

Watching touchdowns and interceptions

I could walk around like a homeless man

Seeking everyone’s perceptions

I could go out and walk the mall and shop

Easing my pain with stuff

I could hitchhike my way to Washington

To tell them I’ve had enough

I could grow old in my rocking chair

Pretending to be free

Or I could be grateful that in whatever I do

I am simply being me
