Trying to do Good Things
Are you stupid or are you smart in your way of seeming out of the rain when you pour your own bucket on your head?
The other day it snowed.
It was actually three months ago.
It didn’t matter because there were no mountains and snow is meaningless
To a skier who is out of bounds.
I can’t go downhill when there is no hill.
Although my life seems pointed in the direction of failure.
I want to thank you for being me when I could have been a less interesting human being.
I could have been the President.
I could have been lost in the details of other people’s lives instead of hugging myself
Like a borrowed teddy bear when I was a little boy.
I could have wasted my introspection,
Chasing after votes,
Huffing for election,
Trying to do good things that mattered when everything fell into disaster
Like Obama trying to be Gandhi.
