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?
