    I HAVE FOUND THIS POEM TO BE VERY TRUE. MANY TIMES HAVE I MET PEOPLE YEARS APART AND NOTED HOW THEY HAVE CHANGED, NOT REALISING HOW I HAVE CHANGED TOO. (Report) Reply

    I wonder if we all read this one in ways determined by our own personalities and life experiences and cannot see the author's meaning? I see sadness here- a young life wasted until he comes home in his closing years to see what could have been was better than what he found wasting his life in vainglorious pursuits. What did you see?

    That's fantastic, ideally it is very difficult to keep the same at constant. (Report) Reply
