The days of youth, when all was fun
No problems to mar our imaginations -
As we let go and soar above the fluffy clouds,
Gliding aimlessly, totally immersed in peace.
Growing up, we experience many feelings
That confuse us and send us out -
Into the dilemma of teenage fever,
Learning, learning and more learning.
Adulthood finds us ready for anything,
As we embark on our journey -
Ready to show the world who we are,
Anxious to get on with life.
One day we wake up and find, yes
We have become that old person, the
One we teased and made fun of -
Woe is me, too start over again.
I have another poem - it is entitled
I have wandered the earth -
For many a day, and behold,
My answer has come
Not in the way I expected.
I have seen trials and tribulations -
Have made mistakes galore,
I have made amends and learned -
Who I truly am.
Such an awakening has come to me -
Finding my true self among the many,
Willing to share my experiences
And my joys with any who want to sit with me.
