Fountain of Youth

Poem by parkelis
Posted: Sep 6, 2010
A mother has found her fountain of youth.



               Hmm. I've read through other profile pages, and after a while, most seem to be similar. But what about the few standouts? Usually, they leave a lasting impression on me by tickling my emotions. How can I do the same for people who choose to take the time out of busy, hectic lives to read my profile page? What should I write about to be different, 'unique,' and have an effect on onlookers? Nuclear physics. That's it. I'll write about nuclear physics. Unexpected, isn't it… memorable, isn't it? Yet, as I quote from Wes Craven's Scream 4, "is the unexpected the new cliche?"

               Maybe I should stick to writing a little anecdote about myself, including some witty humor. I'll tell you the common spiel on how I adore writing. I've loved it since I was a wee lad, when I first picked up a #2 pencil, asked my father what it could do, and he told me it had the power of expression. This didn't happen, but it's what you'd expect, right? Now I've done it. I've assumed what you, my reader, would want or expect. I hate assumers; they're often utterly mistaken. I'll stop now.

               I don't know what to write, and yet, I've already written so much. I think the one thing you can learn from this is that I overanalyze everything. I'll leave you with one sentiment. Enjoy my works. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on them. Thanks for visiting and please come again soon. That's all, I guess. I sense another 'hmm' coming. I also want to leave you with my self-awareness. I know I can sound presumptious or pedantic at times, but the emotional chord I harbor is most instrumental in my life. If you were to know me, you'd know that  feelings guide me. I always care (about others and myself). Best wishes to everyone.
