I wish I could have told you How and when they crossed the line When I became a piece of meat On which they tried to dine But I learned from experience That you never took my side That you always tried to blame me As if I had something to hide You should have been my comfort It should have made you mad Because I was a victim Because it made me sad Instead I kept it quiet The way you taught me to For fear that you would blame me Just like you used to do ### Of course I don't k
Smoking meat Treasure hunting Giant bubbles Football punting Milky way Frozen nights Camping when the time's not right Nerf gun wars Crazy dreams Chocolate cake Tickle screams Burping contests Basketball Are why I love you most of all. Kites and fishing Homemade clay Drones and stones And baseball days Holidays and barbecues Are all I need to fight the blues.

2019 is fast approaching and I'm checking off a resolution a few days early. New Year, New Change in Gear 2018 was a doozy. I went into the year knowing it wouldn't be easy but I had no idea the challenges that lay ahead. You name it, I dealt with it.
