Man, I've just got a knack for poppin' your reply cherry, huh?
This is like the fourth poem of yours that's been read by many, yet I'm the first one to reply. LOL.
Anyway, I like this one. There's plenty of truth behind your statements and I agree with the last stanza about how a photograph of one's self represents that person, always and forever. I may dress differently now, I may speak a bit differently, but no matter what; the Sprout you see in pictures of the past, present or future will always be the Sprout that you guys put up with now. Just like you or anyone else.
Kudos! Ya did well, Pockets!
