things i never learned

29 Dec

never learned to drive a stick

my hands would herk and jerk

and without the smoothest of motions

the gears would always stick

or slip out into some awful place

where many a mishap can occur

i owned a guitar once

but never learned to play a lick

my hands were stiff and full of pain

each time i tried to play a new refrain

things i never learned

how to seduce

how to get past the pain

never as easy as i’d hoped it would be

knowledge cannot come easy

it requires technique

and more patience than i could ever muster

things i never learned

i will learn one day

in a galaxy far far away
