Yesterday's Youth Reborn Responsible
Youth is a puzzling mystery.
A period of purely magical history!
There is power in being who you long to be.
Yet ignorance blinds you, so you can't see.
Youth lives each day like it's the last.
Neither looking to the future,or facing the past!
Like if a play’s performed with no cast,
Youth can become nothing, but wasted trash.
Then one day your youth is gone!
You lose your energy, and become withdrawn.
You play out scenarios in your head,
And wonder why your old self is dead!?
It's not so bad, for you should not morn!
This process means you've been reborn!
You finally look to the future, and learn from the past!
And it's there you find yourself, genuine and true, ..... it's you, ....at last!!
