Reflections

I remember when I used to be in school

A hundred friends

It never ends

I must’ve been a fool

I remember when I had a normal job

A nine to five

To stay alive

A pansy for the mob

I remember when I wore the Army green

I fought the fight

Both day and night

And sometimes in between

I remember when I used to fly first class

I traveled far

Hotel to bar

And landed on my ass

I remember when I used to wear a star

I risked my life

They stuck the knife

A little bit too far

I remember when I used to write the books

The stars aligned

With contracts signed

My publishers were crooks

I remember when I used to be a Dad

Grew up one day

They moved away

I’ve never felt so sad

I remember when I used to be a man

Now miles away

I slave all day

I see me when I can

I remember when I used to be alive…
