By Jake Cosmos Aller


Illusions stripped away

I look at myself

63 years old

In reasonable health

Living with my wife

Retired living overseas

Writing a blog

Getting poetry and short stories published

And don’t understand

Why I can’t be happy

Political news infuriates me

And causes stress

Perhaps it is time to just let go

Don’t worry about things

That I can not control

Be content with what I have

Help manage our real estate

Write in my blog

Be more positive


And reflect on what I have
