Why fight time?

Why fight time?

A Poem by Jack
"

Culture is always telling us to be young yet no matter what we will grow old. One must accept this, find happiness outside of childhood. We can still admire childhood but will never be children again.

"
The world you know so simple and small.
Beautiful blissfulness, undisturbed innocence,
perfectly pure, lacking listlessness,
What a grand state we get to experience! 

In moments present and memories past 
The beauty of childhood will always last.
Youth should be enjoyed Then Admired, 
but somehow became at all times desired. 

Fear of death? face it head on!
Be bold! It is your destiny to become old.
Only then will pure peace persist, 
cause as you grow up time will call.

Hearing the ring you can press ignore
However some day he'll be at your door.
So why fight nature as it pulls you along?
Inspire, create, catch fire, be you!

Enjoy all ages, make a beautiful song
The best in life is not making it long.
Why aspire towards age regression
When so much is found within progression?

Wisdom and truth can be just as euphoric,
So replace that desire since in the end
No matter how good one's intention might be
It will not change our finite reality.

I love the inspiration it provides to the reader (in this case, myself). The words grabbed my attention and didn't let go until the last line. It left me wishing to go out and do something epic, which is very rare for me by just reading something. Wonderful job =]

I like this, the lines rhyming regression and progression has a real feel of street poetry to it. Plus it's a great subject - I might be inspired!

Wow This Es Intense! :) iReally Liked Eht. My Favorite Part Was "In moments present and memories past the beauty of childhood will always last"

I loved this so much I can't stand it.
The rhythm and rhyme are both wonderful but the message is something I agree with completely and have contemplated many times. People put chemicals in their faces, dye their hair, use all kinds of "age-defying" creams and get cosmetic surgeries to turn back the hands of time when their fate is inevitable. What happened to aging gracefully? Anyway, this is wonderful. I rarely connect with a work the way I connected with this.
