Growing Young
When we are young
We can’t wait
To grow older
When we are old
We dream of
Being young again
Life is full of
What we are
And what we
Wish we weren’t

Our dissatisfied hearts, always wishing to be where and when and what we are not. But a wise heart will not wish to go through growing pangs of youth twice, cherishing each present moment instead. But I do wish the energy on my young years hadn't left me as my little ticker tocks closer and closer to half a century. Sigh.
