Forever Young

Peering over the shoulder
a certain sadness does ensue

How quickly has the time lapsed
without giving any residual clue

Wonder carefree those epochs
where along got mislaid

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

Got embroiled in mundane trivialities
in attempt to somewhat attain

Fighting diverse oddities
in order to subsist and sustain

Affiliations picked enroute
some stayed while others didn’t much last

A few facets conformed to expectations,
where others were in utter contrast

Perceptive image of those known earlier
on meeting again gets belied

As ravages of the time-lapse
have metamorphosis since applied

Ensconced within each heart
an eternal child exists

The one with immature nuances
where impish streak persists

What may appear outwardly
but on inside old self remains clung

The body may though wither
but the soul is forever young

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
