Brief yet Insightful Poem about Youth and Wisdom

It oft is said,

To be young again,

Is a wish so very yearned…

For me, instead,

To be youthful, then,

I could keep my wisdom learned.

There is quite a difference between being young and being youthful. One can still be old and yet be youthful in many ways, such as maintaining a youthful grace when dancing. I don’t know that I would want to be young again but I certainly would love for my body and mind to be more youthful!

Which do you desire more? Young or Youthful? Please share in the comments below, we would love to hear from you!
