On The Precipice of Mediocrity, Teetering

Immoral Past  

Since last night I told you about a pretty unselfish act, I thought I'd show you a pretty craptastical poem I wrote in college, detailing one of my not-so-shining moments growing up. Keep in mind, this was for a creative writing class... poetry was never my strong-suit, and it was an assignment. Also, since Blogger doesn't allow tabs or extra spaces, some of the structure is lost (think e.e. cummings), but it's close enough for a quick read.

Weak

I remember
Hearing
"We all want to be Obi-wan"; and believing
"But the truth is there's Vader in us, too"; and not believing
Foolish

I could have tried harder
It didn't let me
I blame it on the dark side
But no
When push came to shove
Foolish

I have to cave, under the hot early morning flashlight

I saw the leather
Lying. Baking. Begging.
To be taken
To be returned
I tried.
Why won't you believe me
I really tried

Just not enough.


So I bought toys

Dinner
Comic books
Even gas

So while he ponders

I stroll, assuaging the creeping guilt
Judging a book by a dirty cover
What kind of seventeen year old moron loses a wallet
Three hundred dollars, chump

I've waded in darkness
Again.

I say you should have gone to the Tashy Station to pick up some power converters.

Who knows, maybe you'd have met a nice pkicwg while you were there.

Impossible. The yzmrjb have complete control over the power converter market.

I think you're too defensive. Granted, I'm not a great judge of poetry, but I liked it.

Young or not, it definitely showed that you had/have a gift.

Now don't waste it.
