The bad thing about
making all these plans
and dreaming all these
dreams is
they don't ever happen
quite like I want them to.
Something won't let me
understand that
I will be disappointed
since deciding a
decade or two early
just isn't logical.
I'm scared;
I let myself pretend
to put my racing thoughts
at an ease of a
lower 60 mph range
that I would never
be able to achieve if
I didn't think
(too) far into the future.
Talk me down
(or back to the present)
from here.
