I found the fountain of youth
When I stumbled across the forbidden garden
Right smack in the middle,
Was what I thought to be a wishing well
I tossed in a quarter!
Looking down with a puzzled face
I peeked to see where it fell
I leaned over and that's when I saw my vanity
It was always there waiting for me
The reflection in the water was my face
In wonder, I asked what this vision could be?
With one drop on my taste buds
I knew I found the one true key
The most beautiful thing that can set one free
I reached in to touch the poetry inside me

Since I am new to the soup, I wanted to get a feel for the innocence and rawness that you displayed at the beginning. Very fresh and revealing - as you realized that you had the gift to write. One of my favorites so far. Also, thank you for your support as I explore - Jesse

The fountain of youth brings hopeful thoughts; a tossed coin; reflection in water, are each thought wrenching, making the poem more commanding. Good job.

After rereading 'Forgotten Treasure' It reminds me of the strength in you, to look and listen with your spiritual senses; this too shall befriend you when your muse is at rest. Peace and blessings.

Skat A. I enjoyed this poem. It's great to discover one's gift and purpose while we are still young. Some live a life time never knowing why they are here. "I tossed in a quarter": This says to me that we need to make some kind of investment, and also some kind of investigation to discover the purpose "inside of us". Good work. Curtis.
