Above n Beyond the illusion…

Leaving the child’s world blissful
Pleasures of careless abandon galore
The adolescent’s world is fast growing
Encompassing endless dreams and more

You find a vocation and work
And the heart longs for love
The society sucks you into its tangles
Responsibilities descend from above

Raising the young
Working for the nest
Like the hero unsung
You run without any rest

On the wrong side of youth
Before you know,
The body shows wear
Where’d all the time go?

Time runs out, senescence creeps in
Like a thief in a row
With accomplices of disease, decline
N’ that looming fear of death in tow

Caged in the disobeying body – mind
Is this it? Bewildered you wonder
Your golden days, now just an illusion
Life’s treasures time did plunder

But when in a dark place
You think you are buried
But you are actually planted
A sprout in a new world freed

Push that rock bottom you hit
Reaching up for the unrevealed
Pull in the strength reserve, don’t quit
A whole new world for you unleashed
