intellectuals and the talented

let’s just accept it:
We aren’t special,
we aren’t intellectuals,
we are mediocre
human beings…
…if that.

Have you ever been
around a true talent,
or a true intellectual?

Our inferiority and
existence
starts to come into
focus.

And you say hard work
is the answer?
Have you spent any time
with a coal miner
or a
housekeeper
or a
baggage handler?
They work harder
than anyone
of
us.

I mean, I come
with a bunch of
baggage that I
handle,
but that’s
not my job
or
career; that’s just
my life-pile of
shitty decision
after
another
shitty decision.

But guess what?
The talented,
The intellectuals,
still shit and piss
and doubt and
dream of being
someone else,
like we all do.

My solution:
Drink every night
and your past
will be forgotten
and your future
will have the
appearance of
something better;
however, in reality,
it won’t,
because you’ll
only end up
hungover
while the talented
continue to
trample your
dreams.

God
Damn
Bastards.

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
