Time Does Age Youth - Poem by Francis Duggan

Time does age youth as the wise one does say
And there is a story in every hair of gray
The worriers in mid life are showing stress decay
Looking older than they are it does seem this way

For material success in life many do compete
To be best in your neighborhood and best on your street
To be best in the country and best Worldwide
For many it is all about ego the symbol of pride

Some their life achievements outlive them though it seems true to say
That all things in time eventually fade away
People like Nature's Seasons come to and from life go
This is how it is and will always be so

And long after the last breath of life from my body has gone
Competition for success in the World between people will go on
Life can be like a competition between people it does seem to me
Though many with such a statement would not agree

What we receive from life may not be everyone's due
But that time does age youth happens for to be true
Not everyone have success stories to tell
There are many by life who are not treated well.
