Youth and Growth

A time of innocence, free from dispare,
With boundless energy, beyond compare,
Once carefree with no worry or dread.
Oh, the youthful days we all once had led.

But as time flies by, we all soon find,
The world we knew is left behind.
Growing up is a journey that we all take,
A path that shapes us, no matter what it may make.

Although we may miss our youthful days,
Where we still had that innocent glaze.
Let us cherish every moment we’re given,
And keep our hearts and minds forever driven.
