    It's called being a man.

    You keep standing no matter what! The rest of the world depends on it.

    I'm still standing . I'm drained my energy

    reserve is depleting its close to empty . I feel like i have weights stuck to my body, trying to pull me down. They weigh heavy on my body and mind. My mind is constantly on play . I just need peace, and somewhere to stock up on energy. I am needed I have to be strong .

    sometimes it is better to let go of people

    that don't mean you well, that goes for family too, if someone is not adding to your life then they are subtracting, I know I had to let go of alot of people in my life. And I feel so much better one sec, one minute, one hour, one day etc. time heals all wound. God is good!

    many things I remember, some happy, some sad. Many things I can say been there, done that about, some with pride, some with remorse. Yet, I have lived all these years, laughed and cried, but arrived at 60 mostly in one piece, still standing. It seems in the course of existence...

    You're still the last thing on my mind at night.

    I should be over us, I should be completely healed from the heartache. But in cold reality, I'm horrible. Weak at the knees, passion's shot just with my mind overwhelmed by so many memories. I miss you. I miss everything. But I'm still here, just waiting.

    so much patience and care to someone and they slowly loose interest in you. It's so hard to let things go. But damn it's better to just move on. It ****** me off that things have to be this way! 😤
