Fade Away

Just as old film dissolves and fades away, so too does our innocence. We stop believing in magic. We learn that life is not the endless highway stretching to the horizon where we can accomplish whatever our dreams are. We can become old and cynical if we are not careful. Yet from this loss of innocence comes wisdom. The wisdom to see between the lines, to see beyond the false facades. Also too, the wisdom to know we cannot change what cannot be changed, and to know that contentment is not found in possessions, but in a peaceful mind that realizes all.
