Fifty

I would have been 50 today.

Most people fly to it, as if it were.
Not giving it much thought I suppose,
Bouncing around in their every day.
Jumping from one chore to the next,
Accumulating wieldless experience.

I mean sure, the endless spinning,
Of that revolver perhaps is tangible.
After all, you do attain the niceties.
They cloth themselves in knightís armor,
Have ships to sail on, and vehicles to speed in.
For most, that alone is enough for legacy.

I see them all the time on my travels.
They are looked up to, those reds and greens.
Factions of 50ís jumping form cantina to cantina,
Making appearances in their stunning garbs,
Talking of title and questís past with peasants.

I would have been 50 today.

I virtually tell myself that all the time.
If only I hadnít gazed at the stars,
Philosophized, dreamt, of what could be,
As opposed to keeping my head down,
Taking every second to stop and look around.
If only I hadnít been interested in everything,
And tried it all at one point.
I would have been one of those cherished.

As it were though, Iím not.
I only have what would have been.
And thatís ok with meÖ

I would have been fifty today
But I had already hit fifty a week ago.
I wanted this journey to last and last
But it was over before it began.

I pondered jumping fresh into another story
But faced with the same long linear corridors
And endless, senseless violence
Eccentric people who want me to murder exactly 10 of their opponents
No more, no less,

I couldn't go through with it, in the end.

I would have been fifty next year
If I could shape reality to my whims.
I came seeking new experiences,
but found a masquerade of old ones instead.

I would have played my fifty today,
But I couldn't find anything to do
that hadn't already been once done.
And that's not okay with me.

I'm the same way. I could probably already be a 50, but I always find myself observing every aspect of the game. I like to explore everything and take my time as I go. I hate speeding through everything just to be 'one of the best'. To me doing that just doesn't give you time to feel immersed and stay immersed in the game. Take your time people..

Today I hit 50, and thought I was rad
My first match in recruit, they called me a bad

I needed to shine, and not feel so stank
So flew to the dune sea, and started to gank

I slayed them in droves, and thought I was grooving
'Til an EWH shadow stabbed me, until I stopped moving

Why didn't I bank comms, was it simply bad luck?
Or was my leveling plan, chock full of suck?

As the Empire's chosen one, that can't be the case
But I think I'll stay here a while, rolling my face
