When Youth Slips To Kindergarten

We’re not far from grace
More transgressions in every day
Like we run in this predetermined race
Winning has always a better and a bigger Way

But why do we slip from progress?
Like an old man annoyed and childish
These are the misunderstandings of regress
We hide the bad things and the good things we brandish

From good points to better points
Sometimes we become naughty not nice
Once we feel the disparity of our joints
Our minds think less of the better and ponder on lies

    Wow! I love that you wrote this. I have been pondering the same thing as of late. I don’t want to lose the glow and somedays I feel it fading. Love this one C.
