Into this world we all begin
Worthless we are without our skin
Not tainted though from other’s opinions
When we are born.
When things start to hurdle through our minds
Countless questions we dare not leave behind
Teenage years are simply search and find times
Times when we discover and explore
What else is there to live for
When we are young.
Accomplished and settled, that’s what you will find
When you have learnt so much from other’s minds.
Everything is within your very reach
Sometimes though, things can appear bleak.
Wanting a legacy and working to make it happen
The future seems so far off, yet within our grasps.
When we are an adult.
Memories cloud are minds of better days
Names of things and people start to fade.
Teaching and showing are our roles now
The past is certainly better than our future.
Things that were important seem trivial here
We just want to be loved and not forgotten.
When we are old.
