Three Ages of Man

It’s kind of funny, isn’t it? --

When we’re children, we don’t want to go to sleep, for fear that we’ll miss some part of life’s experiences.

Then, when we’re youths and young adults, so many us put a great deal of effort, and chemical enhancement, into going through life unconscious, spending their lives sleep-walking.

And then, when we’re middle-aged and old, many of us do our best to chemically forget what bit they do remember of the sleep-walking years.

Indeed, I often look back on my childhood years and miss them. Sure, back then all i wanted to do was grow up and be free.

But with freedom came responsibility, that never gets any smaller, until off course i'm just to old and useless to do anything about it anyway.

Funny how things turn out.
