Forever Young


Peering over the shoulder
certain sadness does ensue

How rapidly does time lapse
move on without any clue

Wonder all carefree epochs
where along got mislaid

What reflects in the mirror
is of what you were so afraid

Got embroiled in trivialities
in attempt to somewhat attain

Fighting all diverse oddities
for the subsistence to sustain

Affiliations picked enroute
few stayed and lot didn't last

Few facets were as expected,
most others were in contrast

Images of all known earlier
on meeting again get belied

As ravages of the time-lapse
have metamorphosis applied

Enfolded within each heart
an interminable child exists

One with immature nuances
where impish streak persists

Whatever appears outwardly
inside old self remains clung

The body may though wither
but soul remains forever young

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
