The Past Is That

I used to be small and I did as I was told,

and I followed all the teachings taught me by the old,

and I had respect.

I used to be just like you,

I did as I was told to do,

I saw only what I was told to see,

and I was confused.

Then finally my eyes were opened,

and I saw that all I had been taught was but mere words spoken,

And I discovered myself and the world as it was,

and I found out what it was like to love,

and I may not have found happiness,

but at least I know the truth.
