We all have songs that remind us of specific periods and events in our lives. Twenty years from now, which song will remind you of the summer of 2014.

Life is precious and whether we’re having a good time or completely opposite, we try to hold on to it hoping tomorrow the sun will shine, with these thoughts in mind I feel I cannot count on twenty years later. It does not make me a pessimist when I say that but a realist.

I will attempt to write about the life I had as a young kid. I was very fond of songs,poetry, and music. I sat in the corner of my house each day and sang the songs I learned in school.

One of the songs I loved was:

Oh give me a home where the buffaloes roam and the deer and the antelopes play

Where never is heard a discouraging word and the sky is not cloudy all day

a home on the range where the deer and the antelopes play!

The modern songs cannot match this beautiful song and its lyrics are so meaningful.

From where I am now I’d rather appreciate the songs of long ago.I leave you with this song which is my favorite :

My mind to me a kingdom is such perfect joy therein I find.

Live where the lowest of the lows

you make  your kingdom__

behind everyone,below the lowliest,amid the bereft.

When I bow to you

my obeisance stops,

where your footsteps meet  disgrace

I am unable to prostrate__

behind everyone, below the lowliest,amid the bereft.

Pride cannot reach where you move

poorly clad like a destitute__

behind all, below the poor,amid the abandoned.

Where there is wealth and respect

I hope your company there,

You are a companion of the distressed

my heart cannot   go down there__

behind all, below the lowliest, amid the abandoned.
