Life passes quickly. I guess you could say I am near the end of my life span. The experience I have had I would like to share. The poetry I have written is somewhat like a diary. A lot of it was written at crucial periods in my life. As I look back, my writing was significant at that time and proves to be somewhat of a time capsule. I hope you will enjoy the experience and maybe see things a little more differently. I guess you could say I was successful. I made it through life and achieved the things that most people want and need a lot of; it is just vanity. So, I lift my glass and salute the future and hope our new technology can overcome our current challenges, thus allowing a new freedom for those of us who endured the hardships of a learning disability.
