Fifty is the magic number
I never thought I could reach
Fifty to awaken the slumber
Of practicing what I preach

Fifty pieces I wrote about my life
Some were easier than others
Fifty poems to ease my strife
My pieces are now my brothers

Fifty to the Romans meant the letter L
I titled my poems with their number
Fifty times over, and did quite well
Now that I am finished, I can slumber

I set a goal for myself of writing 50 poems each titled with the letter L, and I have finally accomplished that goal. The following poems are the result of my work.
