For Arthur - Poem by Aram Stefanian

We were so young and easy
But not at all dumb
Our smiles implied what
We meant and not cynical sarcasm

We thought we were totally free
And maybe that was damn right
Too impatient to grow up fast
Wasting our time and enjoying the
Simple life both night and day

Too naive to believe that love
Would never fade away or die
Now it's rather late to regret
Over the values we didn't deny

We haven't become the ones
That we as kids dreamed to be
Who intended to confront with
Such grovelling misery and collapse?

We were willing to change the world
But the world has altered us
