I am clueless to the way they act

They have changed a lot and that’s a fact


Why they are so is a mystery to me

The reason why, I just fail to see


But it seems to be about growing old

With age maybe the heart turns hard and cold


So forgive me if I choose to sit here and bite my tongue

And hope my heart and soul will stay forever young

    Hey again, John! This is a thought provoking piece. I hope that my heart will never grow old and stagnant, and I'm sure your 'heart and soul will stay forever young'. We must accept changes, but holding onto our young hearts and budding souls, is of essence. Some may have seemed to have hardened, though it is likely just a passing thing. Life can throw a hard we catch or bat them away? Take care of yourself, my friend! God bless, Mikki
