Reflections of Me

February 17, 2012

I am a mortal coil –

A strange loop speeding through

The warp and woof of life.

This mortal coil

Frets and toils to plant his seed

Within the soil –

Then waits to see what grows.

When I search the world for signs of me

This is what I see…

Things that I take care of

And things that take care of me.

After half a century on this earth,

What do I have to show?

The only things that seem to grow…

Are the things that I don’t know.

-DeRicki Johnson
