YOUTH

Beautiful and strong
The peacock and the lion
Want to see everything
Have a taste of every thing life has to offer
But not wanting to suffer

Like the rose, beautiful are its petals
Strong as metals
The cradle of his years
The saddle which his life rest upon
As he paddle through the oceans
To determine his fate

He’s told in every corner
That his destiny in his hands
To make a stand
Fight all obstacles
Break free from all societal shackles
Face life head on
As he travels along

His path to destiny isn’t that far
But one you can’t see afar
Close to him
Yet miles away
Only his action could help
Persistence, determination and patience
Should be his friends
His relationship with hard work must know no end
Only then will his period of beauty will be put to proper use
And his old age devoid of excuses
Cos he’s youth though beautiful yet can bring about a pitiful end
If not managed wisely
