How far I've come From Carolina! Twenty years In time, Miles more than I can count, Aged from Experiences Without number. I pass over it All today, Four miles high, Captive of USAir And memories Slowly dimming But not yet forgot. The attendant Proffers me A mint. Years ago, Life itself was Sweet like candy, too. I knew So little! Life knew more And showed Me schooling Never stops, That candy Comes in many Flavors, Not all sweet.
