From A Pro To A Novice

From A Pro to a Novice

Couldn’t open my eyes this Tuesday morning,
they felt like they had been out smoking and drinking.
It hurt so much that even the moisture of tears,
took a back seat to the changes that had me thinking.

Everyday seems a drag compared to my youth gone astray,
and my body aches even when I am doing nothing at all.
My hunger pains are now filled with junk wonders,
while I ring the phone often at work so as to stall.

Noises outside my window that required four letter words,
no longer bother me as I lay on my bed unprovoked anymore.
Once there was a woman upstairs with a night life,
that I now call a lady instead of her job as a hore.

Strange as it may seem I no longer worry about the sun,
that used to stare at me in the eye and belittle me.
I really understand its existence now that I think about it,
when before I cursed it for blinding my eyes that could not see.

What I once viewed as laziness and selfish experiences,
I now feel that I have an inner reservation about the motives.
The times that I thought I was all high and mighty in my past,
are now filled with an experience that makes me not a pro, but a novice.
