While bringing nothing new to the table

I felt ill equipped and unable

All too regular a moment

To relive again

Searching for an unhatched existence

One before all of this

Born into this 

Ill say like anyone

With clout to get the job done

The Bukowski ones

Every one of us out there 

Struggling for something 

Chugging along 

Claiming anything 

Clinging on to all of it

Unhinged from drowning in vodka

My inexperiences came evident 

Letting my brother get the best of me

Insecurity ran raining down less to be

All that i should of been

All of who i really am

Hoping the next life will allow for more confidence

But it isnt over yet


In Ten years more

Ill have something to show him
