Phillip Coffey - New Reality

NEW REALITY -- By Phillip Coffey
New reality since I have 'put on' a few extra pounds
All 'fogged up' early - with whatever I may encounter.
Keeping a safe distance from all the world turmoil-bad news.
Sitting on my 'rumpus' - lost hope long ago of climbing the ladder.

Briefly thinking over some of the options in my life not chosen.
Where would I be if I had not changed my thoughtless pattern.
Don't know, but here I be miles from the recently angered ocean
With people I love, at peace with the Son of the Creator.
