Question of the Day

Seems the love I've known has always been

The most destructive kind

Yes, that's why now I feel so old

Before my time.



Yesterday when I was young

The taste of life was sweet as rain upon my tongue.

I teased at life as if it were a foolish game,

The way the evening breeze may tease a candle flame.

The thousand dreams I dreamed, the splendid things I planned

I'd always built to last on weak and shifting sand.

I lived by night and shunned the naked light of the day

And only now I see how the years ran away.



Yesterday when I was young

So many happy songs were waiting to be sung,

So many wild pleasures lay in store for me

And so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see.

I ran so fast that time and youth at last ran out,

I never stopped to think what life was all about

And every conversation I can now recall

Concerned itself with me and nothing else at all.



Yesterday the moon was blue

And every crazy day brought something new to do.

I used my magic age as if it were a wand

And never saw the waste and emptiness beyond.

The game of love I played with arrogance and pride

And every flame I lit too quickly, quickly died.

The friends I made all seemed somehow to drift away

And only I am left on stage to end the play.



There are so many songs in me that won't be sung,

I feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue.

The time has come for me to pay for

Yesterday when I was young...

Best Answer

please refrain from using the 'retard' word, I work with people with learning disabilities and I find this word offensive

Best Answer

Actually I have learning problems and statements like yours are the only ones that ever bother me because they polarize, unlike the savage flurry of throwing the word " retard" around which could have just been anyone.

Best Answer

I was quiet, shy, very introverted, and didn't tak much. Also I was very sensitive about having a speech impediment. Now a days, i prefer to pass it off as an accent, which usually works.

Best Answer

You sound a lot like my son.

Best Answer

Dangerously imaginative, polite, a middle aged woman trapped in a little girl's body.

Best Answer

even more shy and quiet than i am now. at least now i speak. according to my parents i did not speak until i was at least 4 yrs old. if i wanted something i gestured, pointed and made sounds but no actual words. like if i wanted to be picked up i put my arms up and grunted until someone got a clue. usually it was my dad.

Best Answer

The same as I am now, only smaller!

Best Answer

Innocent. When we are children is when we are our purest. I was completely oblivious to the bad things in life, so I miss those days. I always spoke my mind. Sometimes I believe we can learn from children just as they can learn from us.

Best Answer

In the later years: so pretentious

Best Answer

weird...very weird

Best Answer

Afraid, confused, without a path but in a good caring family to at least provide a platform to get a more than fair start and develop into someone I hate a lot less.

Best Answer

I had or still have a dysfunctional family, grew up with 3 sisters and 2 brothers they all were very loud and noisy, I was too quiet and shy. I always felt ashamed of being around them, I never wanted my friends to see or meet my family. I am still the same except that I love my family now but I believe I still don't want people to know how crazy they are, Lol.

Best Answer

I was brought up in a loving family and compared to what is I see around me, I would like to think that I have been an a child that listened to what my parents and teachers told me. I have had my fair share of the naughty things that boys get in to but not the serious kind of things

Best Answer

Receded into a shell at 5. Now I don't trust people and sorta dislike the people around (just a few and only a little)

Best Answer

inquisitive, mischievious, independant and bit of a loner
