Life is Now

Life is Now

Wide eyed wonder of childhood dreams
Unabashed glee in daring schemes
Innocent laughter, loud and free
Bruised elbow and bleeding, scraped knee
Life is now, pure and true

The rebellion of teenage years
Sudden anger and needless tears
Often sulky and always rude
Cloaked in aggressive attitude
Life is now, bold and wild

Ambitious youth caught in rat race
No urge to pause or slacken pace
Climbing the ladder of success
No time to rest or  to de-stress
Life is now, fast and rushed

Old age comes with calm acceptance
Less complaints and more repentance
Wisdom that comes from life’s sorrows
No more living for tomorrows
Life is now, memories.
