COVID has killed and hurt so manyThe sad stories of health and wealth lost are aplentyI pray for those who lost more than IBut in quarantined self-reflection it’s all about me, no lie!
In my mind I am still youngBut at 40 I guess I am halfway doneWhen did I get married and become a dad?Amazed at my wife and kids, but somewhat sad
Along the way I made too many decisions out of fearKnowing that old age was far away, now so nearToday I am a little too bland for my younger selfI have been too focused internally and overly obsessed with wealth
All that matters is family, friends, and communityAnd what one does to help others is the best immunityFrom the self-regret of not doing the mostWith that limited time and talent until we are toast
So today I put in motion becoming a leader who puts others firstI am done lying, these leaders we elected are the worstI am going to start now but it’s more fun to change as a teamHow about you, are you going to change? Or is this just a dream?
