The Man of Modern Myth


These are just words & I am just a man.
Taken at face value we’re exactly the same.
Words need substance, I need context & what defines us always remains the same.
Actions give purpose, purpose gives reason & reasons give rise to certainty.
I am legend under the right light because perception dictates what dreams may come.
Delivering lines as though someone yelled “action”, I’m under the lens like this was my full-time job.
Does what I do really matter in the end?
What if each move was rehearsed & choreographed in my mind’s theater?
I’ve got to be perfect, every interaction is an interview.
Every action is noteworthy, so I can’t leave mistakes on my record because that becomes a part of my history.
History is but a modern myth that we’ve decided as fact.
Will you remember me or just the words which were left behind?
Which will be fiction & which will fact?

Behave Yourself


Your beliefs don’t make you a better person. Your behavior does.

Fall Back In (Getting To Know You)


I find it amusing when I catch people falling into their habits. Whether it’s finger tapping on the table to a song that’s playing in their head or looking off into the distance absentmindedly for minutes at a time while you stand right next to them unnoticed. It’s absolutely adorable to see people being so unguarded and open. Maybe I’m too observant for my own good, but please don’t let me know. I’d rather take a peek at your state of mind before I dive into conversation with you.

I just want to get to know you. It’s the little things that peak my curiosity.
Sure I don’t know who you are, but that might just change if you keep doing that. I’ll seize this opportunity; take it & run with it.

“What is your name?” is all that I want to know while I’m looking at you.

 

“Curiosity is, in great and generous minds, the first passion and the last”Samuel Johnson

 

What do you catch people doing that put a smile on your face?

What sparks your curiosity about someone?
