Poem By Orlando Belo
I was suffering from hypertension,
the doctor suggested rest,
and to spend more time sleeping
than I was spending on the nest.
I had to make life-changing decisions,
and stop burning the candle at both ends.
Which meant I had to stop partying,
and cut down on my lady friends.
I had to review my fully booked calendar.
and drastically reduce my dates.
My lady friends all flashed before my eyes,
but I knew my life was at stake.
This decision was incredibly difficult;
I loved all my lady friends.
How could I possibly choose one over another?
This shouldn’t be how a friendship ends?
I have to look at this situation objectively,
do I die happy, or suffer multiple broken hearts.
I will definitely make that decision soon,
when life further dictates my part.
