Looking out for Myself

Looking out for Myself

When I was born
 I looked out and wondered…
 ”What on earth…?”
And I prayed to my Lord…
 ”Good God, is this it?”

When I was half way
through my life
 I looked out and mused…
 ”This is it!”
And I prayed to my Lord…
 ”OK…”

When I was near the end
 I looked out and wondered
 ”Heavens above?”
And I prayed to my Lord…
 ”Seriously now, You were joking
 Weren’t You?”
