  • Isn't this the way it's meant to be?

    We seek
    we meet
    we love
    we change

    and in the changing
    we have not found
    what we believed

    and so
    we settle
    into something
    less that what we wanted

    or do we grow
    beyond the foolish dreams
    to visions more complete
    and more majestic

    begin and end
    begin again
    do we see the other
    or do we just pretend
