As long as I can remember I have felt like an adult.
It is only very recently that I have been able to start to recapture some brief glimpses of memories of childlike feelings.
But I remember as a child wishing for what seemed like forever that I could be on my own and leave everyone I knew behind.
"That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. . . What will your verse be?" Robin Williams as John Keating in "Dead Poets Society"
