The Antithesis of Childhood

Wednesday, February 8, 2006

Reading back through my blog, I realized than many of my posts were geared towards to future. As much as I hate it, my life seems to be following the same pattern that all youth go through… all people, for that matter, whether young or old. We start young and want to get older, and get old and wish to be younger. Even knowing that, I still want to be older.

There seem to be so many advantages to being a man, as opposed to ‘young man’, or youth, or whatever. As a young man, people tend to not trust you, they tend to misjudge your wisdom, and they often avoid you. Adults don’t seem to have this problem.

Ah well. It will come soon enough, and I’ll be on the other side of the fence looking back.
