Stupid Holes

I changed my shoes and changed my clothes,

so I could be the things they like,

but still they were not thrilled with those,

not even with my motorbike.

 

I joined a gym and changed my hair,

I got my arms and back tattooed.

They didn’t see or didn’t care,

and some of them were even rude!

 

I changed my tastes and changed my voice,

I copied what I thought they dug,

but still they didn’t dig my choice,

and made me feel a proper mug.

 

I had enough of hunting ghosts,

of fitting through their stupid holes.

When fools keep changing round the posts,

your time is wasted chasing goals.

 

So now I only please myself,

my friends are few but they are true.

It’s better for my mental health,

and maybe it could be for you?

  1. I love it! This is greatness. Reminds me of so many things, feelings, of the book I’m reading, of the desperate desire to change for someone I loved, every time, knowing at the same time that whatever I did it wouldn’t be good enough, so I quit on time. This is also wisdom, I hope, to please yourself, to value yourself, to never again care about what the other people want. If I understood right.

        1. Damn. I didn’t even know that was in there or I’d have kept it for myself! I thought it was all odd socks, broken cups, and my dad’s pants.
          I must be more careful with my goody bag etiquette in future!
          Oh well enjoy your prize!

            1. I’m afraid dad’s pants is the closest mystery prize to what you ask for. Grandma’s been gone a good 35 years now. It’d be weird if I kept her bra and stuff. No-one would understand!

              Another funny song recommendation eh? Hmmmmmmmmm. I don’t know if I can deliver GENIUS on demand. You know not what you ask Irina!

                    1. I am saying nothing which may later incriminate me in a court of law. I am entitled to one telephone call to my solicitor(I don’t have a solicitor!(but you don’t know that – he he he)). Until then I’m saying nothing!!
