"Random Thoughts 2: Aged Wizard"

Iíve never quite fit in.
There was always something quirky about me.

I never paid much attention to what was in style at the time,
Or what new artist sounded the best.

I used to think I was always one step behind.
Only recently did I realize the opposite: Iíve always been one step ahead.

While all my friends avoided girls,
I yearned for their physical embrace.

When they finally wanted them, I wanted more:
A serious relationship with one special woman.

Later on, my friends all bragged about their sexual conquests,
But by then I was looking for true love.

Perhaps I missed out on a lot of exciting things as a result,
But I wouldnít trade the lessons Iíve learned for the world.
