I Was Listening To Frank


All the things I could be

All my choices from life that tree

Pick a plum and see


I reached yes I did

I picked the fruit

But it withered and turned to dust


Yet I picked again never doubting a minute

It shriveled once more

Undaunted I chose


Again and again

My tree of life bloomed

More opportunity to choose


Here I am

It’s Autumn for me that age

My heart carries on still young


Yet life still blooms

I pick another plum

Will this be the one?


Though some weren’t for me

With this one we’ll see

Through struggle sometimes pain


What’s left in store
