-Watching the ice melt-

Updated on March 28, 2015

-Watching the ice melt-

It's funny how time has a way of taking everything away. People I've loved died, places we used to hang out, grown over with weeds, clubs renovated, fishing holes dry up, friends move away, styles of music change, different dress fads pop up and faze out.

It makes me sad to see that everything so precious to me has become obsolete through times unwanted changes. I wish sometimes that I had the power, to start the day, and stop the hour. I would love to be back in them old woods, the woods that consumed so much of our youth.

I remember before Xbox, and internet. I remember before the internet consumed the attention of the world, we used to get our information from reading and watching television. I remember day dreaming, what happened, do kids daydream anymore?.

I remember taking bike rides around the town block, fishing, BB.gun wars, sneaking out of the house at night to chase the feeling of freedom, getting grounded, running from the town bully, standing up to the town bully, sneaking sips off the keg when the adults would have party's, I remember the days before toilets flushed themselves, store doors had to be opened with your hands, The days when a typewriter had a purpose.

I so wish that I could have frozen time. Today we have oil being leaked into the ocean, omissions from vehicles being leaked into the atmosphere, life where life should not be, and death where life should be.

Has god abandon us? Was Jesus really the son of man? Did Jesus really die for mans sin?

I see evil everywhere.

Where did human hospitality go?. somewhere in the mid 80s, early 90s people started becoming selfish, and nasty to each other.

I remember the days when you got a flat tire you could pull over to the nearest garage and they would fix it most times free of charge, where did those days go?.

Sometimes I dream of the end, but until then, I'll just sit back and watch the ice melt.

      Your right the world has change far too much.

      I really enjoyed my childhood playing outside running everywhere.

      My mother and I would walk to the shops and walked around a park that wasn't to small.

      Now kids ride every where, this is if they get outside.

      I know what you mean, I relate to the loss of so many of my family and friends. Nothing seems the same anymore. :-0
