Beat the System

A hall monitor told me my shorts were too short to wear at school. I replied, “Alright, I’ll just go wear them elsewhere, then.” And I left school. Haha, I win.

Stuck in my head

I wish I could do better by you,
Cause its what you deserve.
You sacrifice so much of your life,
In order for this to work.

While I’m off chasing my own dreams,
Sailing around the world,
Please know that I’m yours to keep,
My beautiful girl.

When you cry a piece of my heart dies,
Knowing that I may have been the cause,
If you were to leave, fulfil someone else’s dreams,
I think I might totally be lost.

You don’t ask for no diamond rings,
No delicate string of pearls,
That’s why I wrote this song to sing,
My beautiful girl.

If Life Were a Choose-Your-Own Adventure:

We’d all give a lot less weight to today and now.
The second we notice the prick
      of regret seep into our veins we would turn
      the hands back
      the pages back
      the words back
and try again.
We all know that no one actually finishes the whole story according to the
      map drawn with their initial choices anyway
      or live with the mistakes anyway.
We’d all eat a lot more
We’d all spend a lot more
We’d all say “yes” a lot more
We’d all kiss a lot more
We’d all a lot more a lot more

As is, life’s just a daily gamble
      doors one two three
      red, blue wires

which to enter? which to cut?

Just…

wash over me
i fear not
the erosion
let the
future scientists
take their
soul samples
to figure out
what happened
how
was there
warning
and when you
go away
let me
believe
the residue
left behind
is a choice
a souvenir
of
the moment
i want you
full force
direct hit
i can handle
the capricious
gusts of wind
causing the battering
of sometimes
indifference
until
i
can’t
and then
well
you’re a story
late night
near closing
dueling tales
of near-misses
that become
more near
and barely
misses
through time
preternatural disasters
left fading
wrinkled scars
it was rough
i tell ya
and they marvel
loudly through
quiet nods
and i
stare
out the window
