The Me That Was Is Mocking Me Now
The man i used to be made fun of people like me. Optimistic, looking on the bright side, a quick smile…
Maybe i didn’t trust these strangers and figured they were either lying to themselves or to me. Whatever the reason, i considered myself smarter than them because if they knew as much about life as i did, they wouldn’t be half as happy.
Now i see it’s the younger me that was ignorant. So, i don’t mind his laughter.
i just wish he’d clue in a little faster.
