The Soul of Man

Oh, youth, innocents of yesterday gone by
Lover of humanity, elude me not!

I beseech thee to know, while time robs,
It likewise gives.

That the wisdom of living
is found not in the beginning but in life's ending.

Great men have suffered greatly
In an endless search to find
The fountain of youth,
The secrets of time.

Alas, blinded to thy light ,deaf to thy whispers,
Overcome by things of the world,
The flesh draws upon itself
The ugliness of self gain!

Oh, youth You are ever present
to those who forget not~ Thy beginning
and walk in the ever shining light of God
The beginning and the end
The Creator of all things.

Oh, Youth! The secrets of time are written
in the Heavens, and whispered by the angels
to each heart and mind.

Unheeded, yet, ever present~
The Fountain of Youth within the soul of man

Be who you are...not everyone will like you but those that matter will. jt
