I was in college over 50 years ago when I picked up the guitar. It was the era of the singer-songwriter, led of course by Bob Dylan. This is the first song I wrote and it still rings true to me today.

Where is my directionFirst Song
I don’t know
Should I make corrections
I don’t know

It’s so hard to understand
Hard for me to plan
How will I ever know
I need to know

What is my purpose
I can’t tell
Will it all be worthless
I can’t tell

It’s so hard to understand
Hard for me to plan
How will I ever know
I need to know

The sands of time
Are running through my fingers
And the pace is fast
But the taste of life
It never lingers
Today suddenly is past

It is past
