I'm the kind of guy who could would stay single even if I were the last dude on the planet, Janet.
Sooo. I'm really confused as to how this shit works.. 0.0
They talk about who they are, who they feel they should be.
They talk about who their friends and family are, and where they hope to see themselves.
They talk about good times and bad times, first times and last times, and joyful times and sad times.
People change from who they were into who they hoped to be, or into someone they never could have fathomed.
People change their friends, and lose their family to death, divorce, and disease. People continually travel farther down their paths, not knowing which forks to choose and which places to stay.
The good times change people, the bad times change people. Their experience changes, and so does their mindset. They burn slowly through their list of “Firsts and Lasts.”
People lose who they are, and loathe who they should be.
People lose family, friends, and their goals, no longer caring where they end up, or how they’ve gotten there.
People lose their memories, good times, bad times, firsts, and lasts. Eventually, people lose their life.
But, I myself can talk to say one thing for the entirety of the human race, living, dead, or yet to live. Every single human being has an impact on this planet. Whether through what they say, who they influence, the good times, the bad times, where they go, how they get there, and how they die. No one person on this planet will ever truly die, because they all live on in the footsteps of time, love, and memory.
