Is it how they now are to me
or how I remember they were,
...a ranking of their impression
to who I was?

What was good may now be lesser,
and lesser then, now good,
as growth is relative
to My and the collective
—its direction – on faith that we improve.

And as in times look I forth to ascertain,
prescience is to be determined.
...But what is certain:
Its hope vail burthen
o' wheder...sense o' sight be true.
