At Least That’s What I Hear, 2005

original written 11-02-98, turned to prose 09-12-05

There are so many things I’ve tried to do with my life, and there are so many things that I’ve wanted, and because I work and because I want, there are so many things that I just took care of myself.
Well, now that I look at my life, I see that there are just so many things that I want to strive for, and I don’t know if I can even get close to any of one the things I want. I don’t know if I can make everything better, and I don’t know if something is supposed to come along and save the day.
There are many things that have disappointed from me in my life, and there are so many things that have never happened... I know, it’s easy to get disappointed about things when you think about them too much, so you can just try to ignore all the bad stuff or just try to change your whole way of thinking or you can just try to be okay with all the bad stuff happening and maybe you can be okay with just having so little and just being alone.
All I have to say is that the last option there isn’t an easy one, but it might save you at the bottom line.
At least that’s what I hear.
