The Crystal Ball of Experience

Sometimes experience ruins the surprise.

It is like a crystal ball.

A ‘been there, done that’ , deja’ vu kind of thing.

It is an advantage of being old, but it’s like reading the last page of a book first.

Most of the time this is a good thing,

but sometimes it is a spoiler.

You want to hope for a different outcome,

but you know it will be same old, same old.

Sometimes I want to erase my memory like a chalk board

and let something totally new get written.

I know this is optimistic.

I just want change. The past did not work so well.

Could we please restart with a blank slate and a fresh outlook

and start again with faith in each other and kindness in our hearts.

My crystal ball has clouds in it.

I want a clear future. Don’t you?
