A look a one life...mine, in this case. =)
I said, Fill me with new wine
but I wasn't strong enough to hold it.

Now I'm broke and picking up pieces,
trying to decide what goes where.

I found a piece marked "work."
I found a piece marked "fun."
I found a piece marked
"I'll do that when this is finally done."
One piece was large and said "family."
One piece said "money" and was very small.
Then I found one that said
"things left undone."
It was the biggest piece of them all.

They put me together, it's true.
But what good is that going to do?

After I fall off the shelf
and I've broken myself,
where are they with the glue?
