have a listen

most of the time
i am able
to separate
writing music
and listening to their music
it's like apples and oranges
but there are times when i compare
and when i do it makes me feel
inadequate it makes me feel
like i should just put this bass down
and throw away my two notebooks

why can't i write
a song like soupy
why can't i sing
just like jim adkins
why can't i scream
like a transvestite
why can't i be
like mike herrea
and learn how to sing
while playing the bass
I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given.
