Recently I realized that
If I eat a lot – I will gain weight.
If I drink too much – I will become tipsy.
If I run too far – I will get hurt.
And thus the myth of me. The super-hero, super self-image
I was above all that.
Even though years and years of evidence point to the contrary.
I came to the realization just this morning
The me in my mind is a myth.
I can’t eat like a line-backer
Drink like Ed McMahon
nor run like a Kenyan.
