Rough Trade

"I'd trade wisdom back in for innocence,
Just for one look through those eyes"
    --Ben Jelen
    Slow Down
Wisdom back for innocence? It's a nice thought, but would I really want to do it?
It seems like such an uneven trade to me.
Innocence is nice -- don't get me wrong -- but experience teaches you things. Experience gives you wisdom, makes you stronger, tougher, and better able to deal when life gets ugly.

Case in point:
See that fellow on the right? What a big fool he is!
He has absoloutely no idea that the handsome blond dude on the left is going to break his heart and hurt him (emotionally) more than he's ever been hurt before by anyone.
He has no clue of the random lottery of meaningless tragedy and the series of narrow escapes he has in store for him.
Boy, has he got alot to learn!

Young, wide eyed, naive, innocent and trusting -- that's what he is.
What a sucker!

He looks happy, though, doesn't he?
