We worry too damn much. We have just one life to live, let your hair down and live it.


Don Abdul ©2005


Life may be unfair

Harsher in its judgement every passing year

Loss of youth a great concern

To those who hoarded that priceless gem

Regret is for them

You live but once

So enjoy life, have fun by the tonnes

For when the night comes

Then aunts, uncles, dads and moms

Shall wear their smiles, and their joy

At memories of life’s little treasures, and lots to enjoy

So you’re 55,

Get off your fat butt, go out and enjoy life

Quit feeling sorry for yourself

Leave your worries on the shelf

Reach out with a warm smile

Call out to someone, in that sexy voice

Like you haven’t done for a while

Find someone of your choice

Laugh with them, have fun

Under the stars, in the moonlight, in the sun

And when you feel great about you

Hold them, kiss them and have sex too

Come on, take the first step

Do not hesitate to ask for help

Love walks in mysterious ways

Might be a younger male that lights the fire in your night and your days

Take what you most enjoy from life

Even if you have to make a 19 year old husband or wife

Drink freely, the wine of life, now’s no time for contest

It’s a time to live life to the fullest
