Looking Back - Poem by Sandra Osborne

When I was young,
I thought that I was old.
Now that I am,
I wish that then
I had known
The difference.

    An admirably effective and concise expression of a truth we all have to wait so long to appreciate!
    But - once stated - there's time enough!

    Yes, very wisely Mark Twain once said, 'The older I get, the better I used to be.' Right on, Sandra...

    Just me, Lare
