Promise of Youth


Promise of Youth

Mature shadows pass by
Reflect nothing;
Self, abandoned to appease,
Past's pain seared onto souls
Scurry to flee future's fear
Hunched under today's guilt.

To see and be seen, self held together,
Pain and fear left impotent
Under guiltless joy,
These faces that shine without
Pain or fear or guilt,
Exquisite reflector of soul and youth.
