When we are young we strive
to be cool with our clothes
and the way we move
and our friends with swag
as adults though our friends be cool
the qualities most endearing
are glimpses of the inner dork
comfortable, sincere and real
mean more than cool

(2014)

There is so much truth in this. If only if some could see beyond the trying to be cool and realize there is so much more to life.

So true... And so sad we're so dumb when we're young.
