A short poem created in 1995, when the world seemed to be collapsing around a confused teenager. I crossed that bridge to become what I am today. A confused dad. This is dedicated to the force that led me here.... and beyond.
Titled: fooling me into living (Dec 21, 1995)
I exclaimed that I just couldn’t sit to study.
“Don’t”, He said.
I finished off the syllabus within two days.
I am lonely because I don’t have any friends.
It is always lonely, He said, at the top.
I gave the performance of a lifetime. It was a flop.
I was “far ahead of my era to be appreciated.”
I have no goodness in me and my life is a mess.
I decided to live, and with the badness, after all.
I discovered that He’d been lying all along, to me.
I lied”, He said, “...to let you discover the truth.”
