Age of Wisdom, A Poem

No need to lament,

Days of youth now long gone,

Or this gradual decent,

From the height of your dawn,

For to look back and ponder,

The days of your past,

How life’s events wander,

Making memories that last,

This life’s been well lived,

Joyous times have been had,

From the days as a kid,

Through the years as a Dad,

Now with wisdom well earned,

You can guide today’s youth,

Save them from getting burned,

Help them seek out the truth.


While not being young changes the things you can do, it is important to remember the things you can offer that are not found in youth.

I hope you enjoyed this little poem!

Have a great day!
