The Story of My Life


 This is the story of my life
         The world as seen by my eye
Craved from childhood, life less ordinary
          Thirst for unseen, spirits soaring high
Roving deep oceans, touching mountains high
          Walking in jungles, conquering blue sky
Is the story of my life!
           Once in glittering uniform,
Another time without a tie
           Traveled uninhibited Mathura to Melbourne
 New York to Nile truly vagabond style
            Is the story of my life!
  Simpleton at heart, unending zest for life
             Enjoy nature’s ornate slice of tangy spice
  Cry for the fallen heroes, Laugh till misty eye
              This is the story of my life!!
