heed

don’t grow old

live in your youth
for as long as you can

you’ll know the moment you lost it

the sharp turn
of letting go

the beauty in your eyes is shattered

the thought of the future
frightens you to your core

a bright light on the horizon

don’t live in the past

those better dates
are long gone

the end is closer than ever before

another day to wake
is not guaranteed

so listen to your elders

don’t grow old
stay young

forever
