         In my youth I believed that
            hearts
         and
           love
 were simple things
   mere matters of
                          honesty
                                 and
                                    openness
 and now...
    I know otherwise
       but I still
                   remember
          the quiet innocence of a
                                                       lonely child
          and I cry-
                    wondering
                             and
                       fearing
                  what has changed


                                                                             and why
JANUARY 15, 2013 - In keeping with the #Glory-Be-Project

Time changes everything. It is through the passing of time that we all live and die and through which all things live and die. You and I and even the stars share this fate... so, why should our ideas, or beliefs, or our hearts be unchanged? Think back on what you used to be, what you used to know and what your heart used to burn for - is any of it the same now as it was then? Why? Why? Why? What changed you?

What changed me?

We all already know all the answers to these questions - it is simple rhetoric to make us reflect, to wonder, to search. Was it for the better? Was it necessary? Was it for the sake of survival or the sake of reality?

Are we still whole?

I don't know what your answers are - that's not for me to know - but I do know what mine are. I know the answers and they make me quiver, they make me angry, they make me sad and shake and wonder...

When did I change?
Why did I change?

Some times, I am left with nothing but the echoes of honesty and openness with myself...

Am I a better man?
Am I a better man?
Am I a better man?
Am I...?

I love to do it whenever I can because it is, otherwise, something that happens infrequently! So you are quite the pleasurable surprise miss :D And of course you're not, you never are! :heart: :huggle:

Glad to hear that! I love that thing about dA, that I'm able to talk with people of different nationalities, of different beliefs... who actually talk to me first, explore my inside before they start to wonder how old I am or what would be others opinion about that. It's just lovely. :heart:

Mmhmm, isn't it? Connecting with someone in far-off Europe and finding that you are 1,000x more suited to them and their views than you are to 99% of the people in your own town, probably 95% of your State and perhaps 90% of your own country is a lovely thing :lmao: I do love how such considerations often fall by the wayside in the face of someone's intellect and personality :love:
