The past, revisited..  
This is something i wrote about a year ago.

I began in an empty room, graciously donated from my parents.

Into this room i placed and collected many wonderful things.

After having found everything i could ever want, i closed the

door. Perfectly content with everything in life, i had no

need for money, fast cars, or anything. Then one day, the

room caught on fire and started to burn. I sat in the middle

of my room and watched everything slowly melt away. All things

i had loved and cherished had fallen on me and scorched my body,

mind, and soul.

In the aftermath, i had nothing, had nothing to define myself;

i wanted to die. Nothing was important anymore. For all

purposes, i was dead. My smile, my laughter, my happiness..

had all been consumed by the fire in that room.

Then, one day i realized my room was empty again, and that i

should start over. Start over from the beginning. But this

time make fewer mistakes, enjoy the triumphs more, make great

friends all over again.

So here i am, using past memories as guidelines for the future.

My life isn't over, someone just pressed the reset button.

cool man, if you think about it, things like that happen all the time. not as dramatic as that, but still, they happen. The "fire" didn't kill you, so now you're stronger, smarter, faster, and better than before... we have the technology. LOL. you know what i mean :)
