Only Newcomers Make It Interesting

Only newcomers make it interesting,
To keep going around the same circles...
Over and over again.
Well...
Until they ask those familiar questions,
'Why does the doing of this,
Seem to have so much potential? '
AND...
My personal favorite,
'What is being accomplished...
By those who pride themselves in socializing,
As if to marvel their wealth of collected stagnation? '

Oh boy...
Here we go again!
Geeessshhh.

Only newcomers make it interesting,
To keep going around the same circles...
Over and over again.
Until...
Well,
They ask those familiar questions.

Excuse me.
It is not out of disrespect.
But I am making it my priority to leave.

We met.
And that was good enough for me.
Be well.
And...I mean that!
You have no idea how much.

And...
In the beginning they believe responses heard,
Are from those cynics quick with criticsms.
And the next time they are seen...
With glazed eyes and alcoholic breaths,
Is just one of many steps they will take...
During their travels through denial,
In a place that makes attempts to kill dreams!
