Age Vs Youth - Poem by Jenny Sarah Olin

Age is where youth thinks they'll never be -
Youth is concerned with "beauty and me"
Age holds onto precious hours
Youth is the blooming flower
Age appreciates the smallest joy
Youth flirts as a child with a toy
Age can wisdom to the youth bring
Youth thinks they know everything.
Age is a marathon hopefully well run
Youth is a fantasy - primarily for fun
Age has regrets
Youth doesn't know what that means - yet.
Age can bring security
Youth often inferiority
Age is what you have become
Youth has a long way til they become someone
Age thinks smart
Youth feels heart
Age to many is a state of mind
Youth is exploring - trying to find.
Age is memories of bronze and gold
Youth is experiences waiting to unfold.
Age is where you go when youth says goodbye
Youth can only question why!
