Thanks World!


you just gotta follow your intuition.
No questions asked
and aim with precision.
At least that’s how you feel.
That’s what you think.
But, in reality,
who’s to say you won’t sink?
you should’ve questioned.
that’s that doubt
everyone forgot to mention.
It all sounds so romantic.
The plan sounds too fantastic.
No one talks about the surrealism.
They just let you gain your wisdom.
Thanks for the heads up world!
Can you taste the sarcasm?
But, seriously though,
I think I’ve grown
more than I can immediately show.
I’ve wised up
more than you’ll ever know.
