The Goal

When I was younger and hugely unsuccessful, my goal was to be normal. When you don’t have a ‘pot to piss in or a window to throw it out ‘ that can seem unattainable.

I cannot remember the last time I went hungry or didn’t have money to pay the bills or couldn’t provide, however it has been decades and I feel like I have attained my original goal of normalcy.

Is it too much to ask to strive for more? Will fear of such lofty dreams hold me back from even trying?


I will just not forget where I was.
