    I once walked the road of Innocence
    with Truth as companion for awhile.
    My best friends were Peace and Happiness
    and I strolled arm in arm with Time
    Then I stopped to flirt with Temptation,
    left Pride waiting outside Lust's gate,
    Strolled down a shortcut with Infatuation
    and Love decided not to wait.

    As Luck would have it
    Chances were free
    But Common sense was not with me
    I chased Beauty, Fortune and Fame
    Sure I was the one
    To hear Destiny call my name.
    Youth promished me to stay
    but Years turned my hair gray.
    Hope left me up to Fate
    but Regret came much too late.

    Now reminiscing, Old Age and me
    with Maturity for company
    i count the friends i've had by their deeds.
    there's Fear
    and Envy
    and Greed
    Pain and Sorrow are now my best friends
    and i see Tears every now and then
    yet none of them, except Experience
    Walked on my road of Innocence.
