The School of Hard Knocks

Learn when to
say your goodbyes,
burn your bridges,
shut the door.

Learn how to walk away.
To cut off.
To forget people like farts.

Especially the ungrateful
wretches you will meet
by the droves.

You don’t know
these things.

You are programmed
wrong by your well
intentioned parents.

You are brought up for
the ideal world.
Hard wired to be nice.
Conditioned to be caring.

The real world is shit.

Learn to flush.


Ever changing

The older I grow
the more goodbyes I say.

To friends, lovers,
places and beliefs
I once cherished.

With every goodbye
a bit of me dies.

Mutating me.

The sun is the same.
And so is the moon.
Only I am different.

With every burning of the
bridge, my old map thrown away.

With very new chapter,
my story made new.

Everything is Maya.
One massive illusion
that heaves and changes
with every breath.
