The Moment You Realize Your Parents Are Cooler Than You

I sought for joy in peace, and rest to ease my weary mind,
Stressed out by such a heavy load, rest I just had to find.
My endurance could hold no more, my limits had been met,
I needed time to stand aside, sweet time to just forget.

But where to find the road to peace, an obscure trait to me;
My hectic lifestyle can't comprehend a way to set time free.
I've always rushed from A to B with no side glace allowed,
I had my life so well controlled; in truth, I felt quite proud.

No one could tell me what to do, I was a self-made man;
My schedules were controlled by me, I had a thorough plan.
'Twas good when all things went my way and no one interfered;
I had no one to answer to, my way was always cleared.

But years of this brought me no joy, though fortunes I'd amassed;
It seemed that all the things I owned would oh, so soon be past.
I had no friends that knew my plight, I kept myself at bay,
They all had troubles of their own; besides, what could they say?

They envied me with all my wealth, they never saw my pain,
I had life altogether, what more was there to gain?
But loneliness is terrible and emptiness is sad,
There seems no purpose for each day, no reason to be glad.

So now I wait; why? I don't know, but life for me must change.
There must be more than fortunes, a way to rearrange.
There has to be a purpose, and someone surely knows,
Why life is complicated, and days so full of woes.

Perhaps you have the answer, perhaps you know the route,
Perhaps you've traveled here before; if so, please help me out.
If need be, I'll be patient, I'll even take advice;
I'll gladly make the changes, no matter what the price.

I don't need independence, I've had my round of that;
I long for understanding, to know just where I'm at.
Someday I hope to thank you because you saw my need,
Perhaps with greater meaning, with purpose, not with greed.

I don't know how I got here, what lies ahead of me,
I'm grateful there'll be changes, I'm grateful to be free.

The second we came out of our mother’s womb, our parents instantly turned boring and responsible. As we fell into their laps, they had no other choice but to take their wild side and put it far in the past. Being that our parents have a few extra years than us, it seems as if they never had the ability to be fun, hip or near to cool but this accusation is so wrong. Before we existed, our parents were living their glory days to the extreme. Here are some pictures to prove just how our parents were super cool.


Pro Water Skier



Just when we thought we were athletic, our parents have yet to blow us away. We aren’t sure how this is possible but this five man ski pyramid just proves how this dad is clearly cooler than we will ever be.



Ridin’ In Style



Now of days, we usually see people riding off in limousines or vans as they leave their wedding ceremony. Well, back then these parents were riding off in style as they hopped on this motorcycle and went to celebrate there marriage.





This father truly knows how to show off. As he sits there mid-air with such grace, we are shocked he didn’t fall off. We sure know if we ever attempted this we would be on the floor in the span of seconds.



1975 Camaro



We thought our car was way cooler than our mother’s car, until we saw this picture. As much as us children want to believe our mothers destiny is to be hitting the town in a mini van, we are clearly so wrong.


Navy Seal



Being in the Navy is one thing but training literal seals while in the navy is another. This father easily had the coolest day job we have ever seen. Making us heavily reconsider our everyday tasks.



Trend Setter



These parents are absurdly cool. As they are stylin in there trendy outfits we can’t help but wonder why we dress the way we do today. Trends back then are way cooler than they will ever be now.
