Different, Yet The Same!

  •  I am different!
    • Yet the same!
  • Each new experience,
    • Adds to what was there.
  • Polishing, washing, cleaning,
    • The many facets of self.
  • Revealing truths long forgotten
    • Or hidden under personal debris.
  • The debris is the rejected,
    • Pushed aside truths of wisdom,
  • Voice by elders in years gone by.
    • Truths that had changed by events and time.
  • I am different!
    • Yet the same!

  • Reflecting on my recent trip to Tokyo and Nara, Japan my views on Japan was changed.  Old truths discarded as a result of the passage of time and change in cultures.
