Block out 
whatever you
refuse to believe.
It remains true.
You don’t.

Bad decisions 
are forever.
Their outcomes,
not necessarily.

When lost in darkness,
your vision improves.

You can hear god speak,
but miss the meaning.
Just ask Abraham.
A god should be able
to give clear directions.

Your first kiss
might last ten seconds.
Its memory can last
an entire lifetime.

Younger women
inspire lust;
older women
inspire life.

I look at young people
and marvel at their ignorance.
They look at me
and marvel at my arrogance.

When you’ve traveled too far
from where you began,
you can no longer reconcile
the present with the past.

What doesn’t kill you
will, eventually.
