Reflections

A million years ago

 

A million years ago there were dreams;

a million years ago there were schemes;

a million years ago there was optimism without end.

What has become of the dreamer, the schemer, the optimist?

Dreams shriveled;

Schemes laid aside;

Optimism turned to pessimism.

Years of toil transformed exuberant youth to mediocre middle age;

lament the foundering of dreams from a million years ago.

    1. Thank you Troy! A very big compliment from someone who writes as well as you do.
      It was a rather odd writing experience – the idea came in to my head and just wouldn’t leave me alone until I got it to this point. I can’t say I’ve had that happen before.
