Simply Grateful

Simply Grateful

I could sit here in this pendulum hammock
Staring at the sky
I could sit down with my profound philosophy books
Asking the questions why
I could sit in front of my television screen 
Watching touchdowns and interceptions 
I could walk around like a homeless man
Seeking everyone's perceptions 
I could go and walk the mall and shop
Easing my pain with stuff
I could hitchhike my way to Washington 
To tell them I've had enough 
I could grow old in my rocking chair 
Pretending to be free
Or I could be grateful that in whatever I do

I am simply being me
