I Missed The Boat

I Missed The Boat

A Poem by Crazy Cat Man
"

A poem about how I have been feeling lately

"
I missed the boat
I'm over 30 I'm getting too old
All of my friends are settling down
I should be married by now
Instead of clowning around
I should have had kids
Instead being out late for drinks
My hairs are turning grey
I'm getting wrinkles on my face
I should have by now have a wife
Instead of f*****g up my life
I should have a ring on my finger
Instead of trying to figure
What to do with my self
I think I need help
I spend all my time
Complaining on yelp
Since I'm over 30 and not married
People think I'm gay
I'm like hey
Thats not a nice thing to say
So what if I was?
What's that got to do with you cuz
Anyways I'm not saying
Not that I think there's anything wrong with it
It's just not my thing
I missed all expectations
I should have been a great success
Instead of being a mess
I am now depressed
Sometimes I wish for death
But I must not rest
My ex has already move on
She's feeling well while I am not
I just want to be loved
Is that asking for too much?
Oh well looks like I missed the boat
I shouldn't need to mope
I have had enough being alone
After I perform
I'm back on the subway
Stuck in my own world
I wish I had a girl
To be on my side
I'm full of pain inside
I'm not trying to hide
That's why I'm on stage
Bearing my soul
I'm feeling scared
Cuz my future is unknown
Oh well thats why I love New York
I am one of the folks
Who is a border line misanthrope
I'm one of the outcast
Who is trying to forget the past
When I say jokes
I'm just trying to get some laughs
If you don't like it
Kiss my a*s
Thank you all for that
I needed that
I don't feel bad anymore
That I missed the boat
I bet some of those
Who are settled
Are probably miserable
Oh well anyways
Now I don't care what anyone thinks
Since I missed the boat
Then I hope that it sinks

I'm on that dock with you! Being a 27 yr old female is probably the equivalent to a 30 yr old male in this sense - I know the feeling of this poem all too well - You just have to keep going and find happiness in a different aspect, because love tends to come around when you're not paying attention - Thanks for sharing :)

Life is only what you make it, right and wrong is a matter of opinion and perspective, If we're happy doing what we want to do, let us be!

I was married so I guess I was in the boat until Hajji blew the damn thing up. Between late 2002 to late 2008 I was away from home for nearly 4 years a large part of that being in what was at the time the most violent place on Earth. Man did that ever throw a wrench in the works. So if you want a relationship to work, stay home. Great poem bro. Ricochet feels your pain, Trust me.

*slaps a hand over you mouth* NO! Shush! I don't want to hear any of this! I want happy Dan, not sad Dan. :(

As for the poem, it was really good, depressing and I wish it hadn't come from you, but still good.

Depending on perspective, it's either really creepy or really cool how much this poem resembles my life story...I'm 35 and I relate to every single line in this piece...it's been a long time since I've read something that I relate to this much...awesome.

Ees
I know exactly how you feel here.
I am starting to get to that panic place. Not that I ever thought that I should be married and have kids by now, but I always wanted to be married at 26 and have at least one kid before I hit the age of 30... and I am not even dating anybody! Ahhh. I don't even know anybody that I want to marry right now. And I have a s****y job and I just moved back home and and and and... this isn't at all where I thought that I'd be! I found an extremely gray hair on my head the other day and I had a classroom full of 7th and 8th graders tell me that I looked like I was in my thirties and that my mom looked like my sister, she's got 30 years on me! I realize that they are just kids, but yeah, this is me panicking about my age.
thanks for reminding me with this poem!

This line is a wee bit messed up: "I should have by now have a wife"

" missed all expectations
I should have been a great success
Instead of being a mess"- yeah... (in other words, I agree and think you did a great job writing those lines.)

"My ex has already move on"- "moved" instead of move

You lost me a little bit at the end, up to that point, besides the fact that you sent me into a panic attack was really good and really relatable.

Nice job!!

hmmmm.
I suppose that depends upon the people at the club and where they are in their lives.
Quite a different but good poem from you--kind of sad, but at least you were semi-optimistic toward the end....Try not to compare your life to others around you- that is when you tend to second guess your own, don't feel bad you haven't gotten married or have had children--your time will come, and at least you have a realization of this so maybe you'll be more progressive in the things you want and make em' happen!
