I used to stay indoors,
seeking out Stevie Nicks floors.
Now I Tarzan.
Now I don henley.
Now I carry a field microscope with me.
I used to eat ingredients raw,
sipping coffee through a straw.
Now every day I get more lucky.
Cause ten extra years taught me
not to be twenty.
Why should I waste my time
thinking “I wanna go back”.
Cause you have to go forward
and that’s a fact.
But it’s an awareness that I used to lack.
I guess we kind of think time travel possible,
or not an obstacle,
if we can get a popsicle at a skating rink.
But a teen has no right to think,
and in your 20’s, you take thinking to the brink.
I used to sit in bars,
now I select used cars
at a price point.
Although my vision is a little blurry.
I’m so unbelievably lucky.
