The Life I've Got
I will seek help with the quest every once in awhile. Sip on spirits, suck on some smoke, or lose myself in some fantastic book. But always and without fail, when the smoke clears, the story ends, and the lights go up, here I am back again with the meatheads, the whining pols, with that part of me that never left. No matter what, no matter what trip I just took - Forget the life I think I deserve. I always return to the life I've got.
And that's okay. It has finally dawned on me. Life offers promise, but comes with no warranty, no guarantee. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. The trick is while I'm here, the trick is not to rust.
