An old cowboy at heart, getting up there in years.
All alone, and lonely, as mortality nears.
Conceding that no man's an island unto himself,
I summon the courage to pull my heart off the shelf.
Though I seek only "friendship," a photo seems required,
as a peek at one's mug is universally desired.
But with this twenty year old flick being all that I own,
this issue might have been better left alone.
The ensuing portrayal is my attempt to present
an accurate "self-portrait," via this venue we rent,
of that I hold dear or for which passion runs deep,
and from which comfort, joy, or contentment I reap.
For all things cowboy and native, cars classic and fast,
music, books, art, and orphans, passion is vast.
An amateur artist, nature's majesty I employ,
in paintings and sculpture, for those who wish, to enjoy.
I'm no "toy" to be enjoyed, until the 'new" wears thin,
then haphazardly discarded, and to do so is a sin.
I have hopes and dreams, and just like you, feel joy and pain,
and from this endeavor "friendship's" all I hope to gain.
So, no games I will play nor I've nothing to hide,
nor subterfuge from a respondent will I abide.
To every query received, I will honestly respond,
in the hope that with someone I will successfully bond.
Question now, my intrepid reviewer, is just how adventurous
are you; and do you dare to explore this opportunity further?
