Youth is what we hold, either in mind, body or both at one time.
But if you waste this precious holding, it may reveal a now unfortunate truth.
Claim and hold onto everything that it offers in that way.
Don't waste your precious youth.

Immortality lies in the soul
My body may age
I will grow wise with time
But my soul will still burn with youth
Until death do us part

Spit on me
when I’ve been spat out
by this useless passive youth
inhaling toxins
to escape the reality
that we have no prospects
so we drink our parents money
until were so drunk
We lack ambition

flowers bloom, wither,
yet there is a bud anew,

youth once lost is regret,
wrinkled, folded, askew

High on every limb
of the pear tree canopy
we sat. Picking the fruit
to eat, ripe crisp and
juicy; we scrumped away
our youth.

I catch a scent of youth
while walking through the trees;
A glimpse of a former life,
a time spent with ease.

Less nostalgic senses
remind me of my age.
The glimpse that just was
turns over like a page.
