(Jann Castor, 02-02-02)


The truth is strongest at the 
first inspiration.

First time
you spoke your first words

first time 
you fell in love

first time 
you felt despair

first time - and

then there was the second
and then the third time

what do you think now?

The myriad of affairs and episodes crossing your path!
tears and anguish mixing the paint on your face!

Why would you be angry or dismayed?

After all, you knew it  all

before you spoke your first words

before you fell in love for the first time

before despair entered your dwellings!

or maybe...

you have never been born before?
