Always there is change,
yet often life traps us in sameness.
Stuck in flaw, unable to break cycles.
We roll into new areas with our original wheels.
They are the same, but not the same.
First, new, cannot be recaptured.
We cannot become unaffected. Unused. Untouched.
But experience cannot be replaced with stories and songs.
To love, to laugh, to dance, we must. Or,
we cannot become
To live is to believe it is never enough.
