four years here, four years there
taught by the greatest teachers
studied from the best of all books.
sometimes you can hear a lecture and it sticks to you
you can see a picture and its there forever
you can kiss a girl or drink with her
or simply hold her hand and all the truth of the universe will radiate inside you
vibrate your innards
and reveal all you can handle.
almost everything i know i have been shown.
sometimes through visions sometimes through wrongs.
almost always while i was being silent
almost always unexpected.
theres so much good in people because they have gone through some of the same dark and wild woods and met the same dark and wild souls and held the hands of the angels and were spooked by the fear and tempted by the demons
and tested by the testers
and judged by the shadows
and lifted by the winds.
i have seen and done things that even a grown man would call remarkable
yet i still feel like im a teen
who cant believe no one is calling bs on this fake id
so lucky theyre letting it slide
so happy to be invited
