So many of us when we were young wished ourselves older so we could do all that grownups did.....and then we grew up and wished we could be young again...such convoluted thinking on our parts!!! this piece looks at all this...enjoy

Then So We Were

It seems so long ago
That we wandered down leafy lanes
By sides of streams

When we were young and oh so fair
Waiting to grow up we thought
Whenever that would come

We wished our lives away
Or so it seemed
Wanting to be old enough
Ti drive a car and have some sex
Such silly ones were we

Carbon Copies We Became

Like flower buds that opened up
When on them sun did shine

We looked for others to approve
And show us ways to be


We copied them in all we did
Losing sight of whom we were

Caught up in all their different ways
Carbon copies we became

Lose Not Yourself

The sun shines down on all around
The rain bathes us in tears

Silvery grey the mist appears
Hiding from the sight of men
What slowly moves along the ground


Wraiths of people now long gone
Their spirits call out loud
Awake awake before too late
Become yourself for on-one else
Can do this life for you


Before you lose yourself
Take heed

Of what might lie ahead
Comes to you in picture form it does
Inside as images so bright
Through many Realms of Sound and Light

I absolutely positively love This!!! You are so gifted and you are so right!! If I would have given myself the permission to be myself years ago, by now I would be a millionaire!! Alas! Here I am instead a pauper in my senior years who must get busy and split some wood to stay warm!! Regrets I have more than a few!! Thank you for being you and letting me be me!!!

Practcal and meaningful - thanks, Carolina. Past is over, future uncertain and up to us too, but the present is always the best present! Why rue the past, endlessly worry about the future but blissfully ignore the present? A life lived with regret is a wasted one. Let us live life on our terms but with compassion. Though we are from the same source but given separate souls for a purpose - siva
