We rise up from a youth
heedless of all before us,
We lift up our hearts to all that is willing to embrace us
never looking back to what might have been
what might be.
From our youth
we rush head long into a long struggle with adult life
too hectic to turn back,
still not realizing all that lies ahead.
When the time comes that we do glance back
it is some days with wishful heart
of all we left behind,
and some days resentful
of all we left.
Sooner than we wish
time speeds then slows
never as we would wish,
just as it has decided.
When one day we chance a glance in the looking glass
do we then see how much time flew by.
The glimpses into a future
now far too near than one might ever have realized,
come insights of a life we were too flippant with
and denied too much direct attention.
But now a smile we must allow
for time will be our guide,
and soon one greater than we
will open good strong arms
and whisper gently,

I know I said I was resting this weekend, but this popped into my head and refused to be still, insisting on being shared with all of you wonderful people.
Have a most awesome Sunday!!
