We are young
Open to the world before us
What opportunities do we recognize?
What do we find superfluous?
We test the waters
Sometimes we take a risk
Sometimes our reality check
Burns us to a crisp
In light of these facts
I’ve enjoyed these times even more
My reflections as a younger man
Seeking this life to explore
This passion to live
In the decades that will pass
There will be much for us to forgive
Keep the fire burning
At the sight of our dusk
Surely the sun will rise again
Let not the heart turn to husk
Leave behind what is not useful
Live today as if it was your last
Like the memories of myself as a younger man
I loved having no qualms of my past
