I might have loved St. Andrews, a treasure by the sea, but I had to shoot my mouth off, and felt compelled to flee.
I might have made a bundle, and climbed the ladder high, but I fell hard for the bottle, and let good fortune slide.
I might have stayed in college, and fallen for a sweet colleen, but it became more enticing to wear the Army green.
The Universe, as it happened, had greater plans for me, from the day I was sent back homeward the Light was there for me to see.
So, my life has unfolded nicely, with faith, love and good fortune, a loving wife and son. Time and tide actually did wait for this errant soul to return, and follow the One.
I have come to love St. Andrews, and much, much else besides. The key it seems, is to take nightmare with dreams, and from nothing, seek to hide.
This made me smile. You have made good in life even having made mistakes. No one is irredeemable. All mistakes can be turned into learning opportunities.
