With age comes wisdom

I am often told

when the young ones are not of age

they not know what for

as they grow and become older

the tongue does stop and think

that the beauty of growing older

is not what they think

its knowing when to say words

and when to say nothing at all

learning to forgive

except and live a happy song

for life is but a song

to sing and find where you belong

so let the young ones be young

let them take the world by the tail

you were that way once also

we thought we knew it all

we each shine our own way

so why not get along

for the hand that you show someone

may get bitten in return

then all gets upset and

no one turns the other cheek

So let the young have a chance

Let them be all that

It happens too fast

Someone else is growing too

And soon too soon they will be older too
