When you know you are the shit…
the world falls away
You really see yourself
I’ve felt the skin of a beautiful woman
and I’ve looked into her brown eyes
It gives me an uncomfortable feeling
like I can’t get away.
I’m flying at 40,000 feet
while I write these words
wearing my sunglasses
and feeling like a Rock-star.
During my tour of Europe
I heard the self-help guru say, “Real men don’t feel.”
“Instead, they get things done.”
but if you can’t love the moment
What do you have?
I’ve gone through airport hell
They detained me at every checkpoint
I got strip-searched
I misunderstood the German’s directions and started to take off my pants
“Nien…Nien!” He screamed, but this only caused me to panic
and the poor bastard saw my boxer shorts
Before I left Switzerland, I asked my friend how people mature
“Experience.” He said
“But what about a guy who lives with himself for twenty years and doesn’t do anything? Would he mature?
That’s a good question. I think he would.”
My trip was filled with these types of conundrums.
There weren’t a lot of answers
and I’m glad for that.
