Change With Age - Poem by Dwayne Bailey

The days of youth and inicence,
have long since passed me by;
I now seem tainted by my age,
my laughter has been replaced by sighs.

Bitterness fills my once light heart,
my eyes are to blind to see;
The beauty of laughter that once filled the air,
as pleasent as a gentle cool breeze.

Why as humans do we feel the need,
to change as quick as we age?
Why can't we stay like a child at heart,
and forget about bitterness and rage?

    Great write Dwayne! I think a lot of people go through that bitterness stage temporarily
    I don't think it stays permanently. Maybe in some. *10*! !
    Thanks for the sharing!
    Best always! Friend Thad
