chang|e one's mind

i wrote a song… in my mind

i’m not who i used to be

isn’t it funny how some people turn out?  like, you think you know a guy, but turns out since the last time you saw them, they turned into a completely different person.  or, some people have crazy pasts that you would have no idea of if they didn’t tell you.  and i don’t mean to preach here (well, kinda) but what’s more amazing is how it’s usually Jesus that changes their lives 180 degrees.

it’s crazy what peoples’ pasts are like.  some people are still in their pasts (which would be their present i know) and maybe they’ll get out of it and maybe they won’t.  maybe they’re happy to be where they are.  maybe they don’t need to make a change.  but then again, maybe they do.  maybe they’re on the road to destruction and don’t know it.  and people are just hoping that they’ll change their ways.  i feel like i’m the former.  i feel like i haven’t really changed that much from my past.  which i don’t think is a bad thing.  i was a good kid, for me to change would’ve been a bad thing i think.  but from what i’ve heard from my friends, while i was off being a good kid, model student, and all-around good looking guy; my friends were off sowing their wild oats and getting in trouble.  so while i am stuck in my past (which isn’t a bad thing), other people have changed dramatically all around me.

what i mean to say is not that i regret not going crazy when i was younger, but instead that the past is the past and there’s nothing we can do about it.  we can’t hold it against people.  however, who people were in the past shapes who they are now.  the past is very mysterious.  it’s mysterious in that it doesn’t matter now, but without it, the present does not exist.
