-Times Have Changed-

As a child, you only looked forward to swimming at the beach,
As a child, you only played volleyball for the prize you would receive,
As a child, winning was everything to you,
You never even realized that time blew by so quick,
Today, you only look forward to walking along the shore at the beach and looking at the sunset until dawn with the love of your life,
Today, you only play volleyball for fun and to chill with friends,
Today, you realized that TRYING is WINNING,
Today, having fun is your biggest goal.

drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
