Oakland Mountain High

Sometimes you hear a song,
and it doesn’t have to be the best ever written,
that makes you feel somehow like you’re nineteen again
and able to conquer the world,
just for a moment,
like the music you used to listen to back then
that made you forget
that world conquest
was never really an option.

(Written in early 2011, inspired by this one song I found while browsing Bandcamp. This wasn't a good time in my life.)
