Riding the white horse...

im sure most people have an idea of what that term means, but in my case it refers to two different things that've nearly killed me in my life thus far.

one is this old road bicycle from the 80s that i got free from a friend at work. he said his son used to call it the "White Horse" until he grew out of it and stowed it away in their garage for the next 20 years. for me, its meant exercise, adrenaline, and idiocy. a few hours ago i went through a red light early because i couldnt see any traffic comming on either end. it was dark and things seemed clear. that is, until i saw those goddamn headlights. they looked like the flood-lights in a stadium, pointed right at my face, in some awkward fashion it seemed like they were telling me "You're about to die, son." the 18wheeler came so close that it licked me with a swift breeze, almost enough to give me a heart attack...

and new years eve, thats when the other white horse nearly took my life. i figured it was a new year, and i was drunk as well. the stuff kept comming around, and before i knew it, i was awake the next day surrounded by my friends, soaked in sweat, water and vomit...

ive learned alot over the past few weeks about plenty of things: drugs, love, life, experience, emotions, danger, ignorance, education, family, friends, money, luck...

but most of all, i think im learning the most about myself...
