Once The Gullible Giver
Yes I was once a gullible giver. Hard to imagine that now, hard to imagine there ever being a time when innocent and me went together but there was such a time. Glorious yet tragic due to the fact that I was innocent, flew by the seat of my pants and gave of myself freely to anyone who came asking. I was blindly loyal, insanely faithful to a dream and to a psychologically disturbed family at the time. At times, I do take a moment to take stock of things and try to remember the foolish boy I was but that is often when I make stupid mistakes all over again, when I feel I didn't learn my lesson. Other times I feel a curious sense of nostalgia for it could be argued that ignorance like a drug - provides a beautiful oblivion of bliss.
