This is just another healthy distraction,
From my life of dissatisfaction.
My nights are filled with books and lectures,
In a world mired in conjectures.
Iím on my way to a degree
Attached to it is a hefty fee.
Itís a thirty-year plan
And yet it feels as though time just began.
With each new day a fresh perspective.
If only I could stop feeling so defective.
I get all Aís in my course work,
But still I feel like a useless jerk.
Love of self is absent today.
Accomplishments fill me with dismay.
On one hand I am supreme,
On the other I wonder if it is just a dream.
Am I brilliant, or am I plain?
Am I Abel, or am I Cain?

You are who you are. Straight 'A's does not a better person make, although it usually leads to a better bank balance.

Well at least you came

Your music is sane

I raise a toast.

Thanks S.G.
