When I was young
I told myself I would never change
That I would always be as I was then, I would stay the same
Then I changed.
Was I deranged then or now?
Now that I’m older
I feel more set in my ways
Yet, I have many more years to go, provided the Lord delays
Will I change again?
Perhaps I will revert
Turning back to the young child
With an ignorance masquerading as an all-seeing eye
Or perhaps I’ll stay the same.
It is better to pray
If the Lord wills I will do this or that
Because a mind may change and old pretentions retract
