To be young…

Be young they always tell me.
But an old soul is what I am.
Ancient at heart.
A thousand years in spirit.
Caged in youth.

Set in my ways.
Certain of myself.
I never dare to impress.
I refuse to be misled by the golden rush.
Youth is sham.

Be young they urged.
But I’d rather be aged,
like fine wine be old and good.
Comfortable in my own skin.
If only old age can grant me that,
then I refuse to be young.
