WHAT GOES ON IN MAN’S MIND


POET/WRITER: FAYSAL BIOBAKU

Someday I feel like I can take on the whole world and Someday I feel like what I’ve got isn’t enough and I’m going to end up alone. Wondering where I went wrong. Perhaps on the street begging for change or in a one (1)bed room apartment with a wife and children and an excuse of a job to keep the light on. I don’t know where I’m headed, It scares me when I see people with their shit together and I dont have my shit together. When will I get my shit together? When will I get that 6 figure salary or when will I be able to afford that amazing car or build an awesome house? When will I be able to say I made it? We go to school for over 16 years of our lives and after all those math classes, tedious PE classes that some people dread so much. EXAMS whose stupid idea was that anyway? Non of that prepares you, they never teach you about taxes, insurance, mortgages, the bills OMG the bills! Not getting any younger, still not done with university, I see my mates graduating, getting jobs, cars. If you say your not sad about it you’re probably a liar. I want cars too, I want to get paid too. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy for them but its depressing.
People say oh.. Don’t worry, it will be your time soon, its just a matter of TIME, TIME! TIME! something that I feel I dont have enough of. I never feel like I have enough time, I’m still quite young but I still feel like I dont have time. Time is slipping away and before I know, it I’ll be married, have kids and wondering how it happened so fast. Probably going through a midlife crisis trying to do weird shit I’m way too old for. But yet again, here, I am stuck in my room wandering what the new session is going to be like, is she going to like me? Should I keep a beard? I wonder who’s going to win the premier league or which babe is going to actually think of me as her boyfriend.
Why’s life so complicated?
I think people just wing their way through most of this stuff, if it works, Yay! im going to write a book about it and I’m going to call it how to be rich, I think its all just bullshit!
Don’t you all just get scared atimes? Don’t you all think of how your life is going to turn out? Isn’t life scary to you? Aren’t you scared of your tomorrow? What am I even saying? Tomorrow is now.
