Freeze

Too often we look

For that moment in time

Where we were happy

Running through fields

Swimming in lakes

How joyous

How innocent

Are we children forever?

Not in body

Not in age

But in the mind?

Don’t look back to that summer day

Or that first baby tooth

Look ahead or you will miss it

The time of competence is short

The time for errors is vast

Walk with wisdom from here on out

Embrace the wealth of knowledge

Or be left behind
