     ENJOYING THE PACE

 

Poems are written and songs often sung

About all the glories of being young.

Seems praises galore just roll off the tongue.

 

And although when young, I thought it quite nice,

It isn’t something I’d like to do twice.

 

I’ve given this subject some in-depth thought,

And what I’ve learned from the lessons life taught,

Is that struggles of youth entice me naught …

 

Homework and chores and parental advice.

An allowance which never seemed to  suffice.

 

The pain of young love, so often awry.

No car of your own — no money to buy,

And sometimes so bored you wanted to die.

 

With changing emotions that drives one wild,

One minute so grown — next minute a child.

 

So in spite of yearnings one often hears,

I’d not regress as my destiny nears.

Because I’m enjoying my golden years.
