Show me someone who says they got no baggage
I’ll show you somebody whose got no story
Nothing gory means no glory, but baby please don’t bore me
We won’t know until we get there
The who, or the what, or the when where

Why I Love It: How Watsky takes something that people deem to be undesirable and finds the positive. “showing that an old object with a bit of character and a story is often more valuable than a brand new, pristine one which has no depth to it – and the same goes for people, too.”
I first started listening to Watsky in 2016, not his music though. Watsky is a well respected figure on the slam poetry circuit, and I encourage you to give his poetry a listen.
