“Days Of Youthful Persuasion”

Oh the gentle days of youth
when grass was our home,
the blue sky an awe-inspiring roof,

all in between was our kingdom for mere moments out of a lifetime.

We were kings of the universe ruling the wild blue yonder and beyond.

Climbing ivory towers to save
the fair maiden in distress,
or to touch the face of mighty God.

Joyous twilight rendezvous
no fears of fire breathing dragons,

burning bridges to our yesterdays
they are fresh in our adolescent minds.

A stick a sword, to do battle
with the shadow monsters,
that attack as we roam our emerald fields.

Little did we know the evil in men’s minds would destroy our innocence,

as the pristine ivory towers fell,
golden promises diminished
our naive eyes awaking to a new horizon,

one of cynicism growing,
yet not concrete in our souls of clay.
