Sometimes, Kids Just Get It Right…

life-doesn't-happen-in-a-straight-lineSo…

I was thumbing through an old journal this evening, when I came across this piece I wrote when I was around fourteen years old (you should see my handwriting!!).

Fourteen was a long time ago so I don’t remember what inspired it, but revisiting it tonight, I think I may have been on to something!

Enjoy.

 

 

 

The Whole Story

I know not anger

therefore

I can not recognize calm.

 

I have not experienced sadness

therefore

I do not know joy.

 

I have never been cruel

therefore

I can not be kind.

 

I have no quarrels

therefore

no friendships.

 

I have not met with desire

therefore

I am no acquaintance of fulfillment.

 

I have never suffered

therefore

I will not gain.

 

I have not been defeated

therefore

I can never succeed.

 

I have not harbored hatred

therefore

my heart can not shelter love.

 

I can not ever die

therefore

I shall never live.
