The rage that burnt within me…

The rage that burnt within me…In the past, my demeanor may have been described as “passionate.”  I always had strong feelings about the world and the life experience.

Over the last few years, however, the roaring blaze has burned down to a few glowing embers. Now older, and hopefully wiser, I accept the realization that I am but a single worker ant in the colony and that life “is what it is!”

There was a time when I thought that I could change the world. Now I realize that the world changed me.

I haven’t watched the news in years. I am now working on a bigger cocoon to insulate myself from the things that I cannot control or change.

And even though a spark may flare up every now and then, it is quickly extinguished and I move on.

I have to admit, it’s a wonderful feeling to know that I am NOT all that important after all!

Hi Richard, maybe you have calmed down over the years but I would think that you are still an important person to many people in your life and maybe even to some others. It is always amazing to me how people will underestimate the impact they have on others even in seemingly small things.

Hi Richard...I guess I never felt that I could change the world but I still have the passion I have always had to support the things I hold dear.  I continue to volunteer and contribute to causes that matter to me and that I sincerely hope will make a difference in the lives of others.

It must be in my DNA.  Even at 75 it has not become diluted.  I don't want it any other way as it has never been a burden to me.  Rather it has given my life a purpose beyond my small confines.  For me it's having it all.

Richard, I do watch the news, and get aggravated, when that happens I turn it off.  What will be will be...we may not be able to change things we want to change...but I still try.
