“I’m left surrounded in darkness but I refuse to be swallowed by it. My loneliness like night air; invisible to the eye, obvious to the… Yet If I could do all over again I’d do it in the same skin I’m in. To lay down and let love die, just stay down and let love lie. No, no, no, no, not I. I’ll stay around and let love fly. Even though I’ve seen its darkest form; deceit. Nothing else could taste this warm or feel this sweet.”
Who doesn’t miss the good old days, when having a bad day was coloring out side the lines?
As we get older we also get wiser. We become aware of what the world is about and problems become part of our daily lives. When older, instead of crying because of time-out, we pray for that peace and quiet. The issue of the day is no longer who took our favorite toy. We learn about the hardships of love, friendship, money and family.
As time goes on we become adults with responsibilities. Time slips away fast, days turn into years. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the difficulties of life that we easily tend to forget about the child within us. Every once in awhile we should look inside and find that child, that free spirit… that sense that no matter what happens everything will be alright.
The strength is within us, once we find it we can overcome anything. When we do this, we realize that yes, life is indeed not easy. But at the end everything WILL be alright. We laugh at the silly things and finally enjoy life for what it is..a big roller coaster ride.
