I mostly remember the days when it used to rain,
When I would be stuck in the house, alone
With the purple cube, a retro video-games console.
Setting up, untangling all the wires from yesterday,
I scan my collection of games, what do I want to play?
I never completed one game.
I’ve always grown up, imagining to have a successful life:
To be likeable, have a million-and-one jobs,
And to have a lot of loving pets.
But, like the videogames, I fear more as I get older.
The people I meet are mean and working,
Only to pay the higher-people.
There’s very little chance for me,
To succeed. To complete just one of these videogames,
At an Amateur level, 16XP and with 0 gold rings,
Is more than I am capable of… but I accept this challenge.
