Disappointed (take 2)

<at the airport , but actually it's really take 1, 'cos I wrote this before I wrote the previous post ... but you know, whatever...> How/why am I feeling so … disappointed?

Let me count the ways.

& not just disappointed, either.

  • Shocked
  • Saddened
  • Heartbroken
  • Sick at heart

 

But only when I’m thinking.

I need to stop thinking.

After all

Children are still so innocent

& un-corrupted

(mostly)

 

Their voices high & sweet

Their curiosity & questions endless

Their questions (mostly) easy to find satisfactory answers to.

 

& I can be like a child too.

Sitting, watching planes take off & land.

 

I think I’ll do that, shall I?

 

 

‘Quote of the day’ with this post: “Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.”  Helen Keller (1940)
