I wish I was dumb

It’s times like these
when stripped of worry,
that angst returns, yet
its source is blurry.

It’s times like these
when complaints are withheld
because, though they were met,
your unease dwells.

It’s places like these
where you begin to repent,
and who knows? Maybe you’ll
know more about yourself.

It’s epiphanies like these
that drive this atonement.
Your anger had no source.
You were its main component.

It’s people like us
who don’t know why we try.
It’s people like us
who say the successful ones lie.

Ignorance is bliss;
The experienced are wise;
The elders are pissed;
The happy are kind.
