OUR YOUTH

OUR YOUTH


Our youth: 
A dazzling cloud filled with myriads droplets of
Glittering dreams 
Proudly hovering in the morning sky of our
Life  
Mercilessly chased by the ravenous rays of age’s
Sun 
Till all is devoured by voracious 
Time!

    As the old saying goes...'Youth is wasted on the young' and we all realize it only when we grow old...Absolutely lovely piece of work here, Demetrios and you drive the point home with true elegance - Tim

    Time is merciless my friend, it is a killing force as it goes on by, but we can mold it to be as good as it could be for ourselves....we can utilize it for our benefits! I really loved reading this enlightening poem this morning! You have written a tremendous piece here Demetrios! What a wonderful poem, Great Work!!

    How true, and still the mind feels so young although the body betrays us. Great poem.
