I don’t understand.

I’m not sure I ever did.

Did I even try?

Yeah, that’s a question.


I’m older now,

but wiser?

I don’t know.

I’m still running the same race

and at this point

I’m thankful.


You said,

you want things to be better;


we’re getting there.

Destruction is easy,

creating is hard.


Remember when we had

long, lazy afternoons?


I don’t either.

Time is an insatiable foe.


So much I know now,

that I didn’t before,

but even after all this time,

you’re still a puzzle to me.


I don’t understand,

not sure I have to.

Good things take work,

and I am still strong.
