Fountain Of Youth - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

In the midst
of an everlasting journey
with no arrival in sight
a fountain of youth
is draining away

Don't waste your life
don't throw it all away
live it to the full
but with a future in your mind

    Captivating language with a prosaic flow. An excellent picture is painted in the first stanza, then expounded upon and made meaningful in the second stanza. It's actually pretty amazing what you've accomplished with so few words! Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
