E is for Eventually



Eventually

Eventually I'll do all the things
I promised myself I'd do
Hang gliding, flying, writing, acting,
And walking 'cross the country too

Eventually I'll take care of myself
And be healthy, wealthy, & wise
I'll get down to my approved weight
And wear tight jeans on my thighs

Eventually I'll get Lazik
To fix my bad eyesight
Then I can put glow-star stickers on my ceiling
And dream about them every night

Eventually I'll finish all my books
Five with two thirds done
I'll sell them all and quit my job
So I'll have time to write another one

Eventually I'll spend more time
With my children whom I adore
'Cause I know that when they're teens
They won't want me 'round no more

I tell me I'll do these eventually
And stop making all this fuss

I tell me I'll do them eventually

'Cause tomorrow, I plan to be hit by a bus

Ya know what Tone? You're gonna do JUST fiiiine. You are! One day at a time. Not huge dreams atta time. Just one day at a time. One step in front another.

You're huge in my eyes, and I'm not sayin' that because I need the same lazik.

You have a wonderful sense of humor and a great sense of storytellin.... and... uh... hmm.. you're a gooood artist. HmMMm.. wunder whaddat means.

Apart from planning to be hit by a bus ... I like the spirit of this!

Cleverly done and cleverly worded. I think your self portrait is amusing as well as thoughtful.

is it an existential choice? something in the smile of your nice self-portrait that made me think-that i had to wait at the end of your poem.

Have a nice sunday!

Hahahahahaha. Very fun. Love the poem. Love the message. Love the self-portrait. The rewards will come...eventually.

steve said...

Will that be a Hot Wheels bus, Tony, or a Matchbox bus...?

:-D

String said...

Don't get Lazik! Ah but it won't matter, will it?

Todd DeWolf said...

Oh my! So I guess you wont need the eyeball fix considering your impending doom? This is freakishly sweet with a mix of eeeeh gads thrown in Tony! Cheers until tomorrow, non?

I think getting hit by a train would be much more exciting, but then I've always been partial to trains.

In my mind, I'm hugging you, hon.

Lee said...

LOL, nice job...sexy eyes ;)

Joe said...

Tony your a mess! good self take guy!

french toast girl said...

I love you, you know that?

love, me

Tony LaRocca said...

Lee- (blush) thank you
Elena - love you too, of course...
String - the real reason I'm wating for Lazik, is because eventually they will have bionic vision with zoom lenses & x-ray vision...

I'm worried about you... Parents can't go gettin hit by busses, etc., because that demonstrates to their kids that it's an OK think. The reason parents take their kids (inappropriately) to vigils or bad movies, etc. etc. is because they don't recognize the differences between themselves and their kids. Maybe they think their kid is an extension of themselves. Maybe they think kids need to grow up too fast. You and I know they are wrong.

I dare you to find a parent being wonderful and tell him or her what a great job they're doing... It could be YOU.
