A spirit will not grow old
Unless you let it.
The flame of Youth is always there
Don’t squash it
With doubts, distrust, experience, and every outcome you think you know.
Rekindle the spark, enthusiasm, innocence, expectation of good things….
Don’t turn away fron the sun because you know it’s going to set
Let the sunset calm you just as
A sunrise will break open your heart
With excitement and hope.
Let your spirit learn from the dark
But keep the innocence of hope,
So your spirit will not whither in darkness,
But expands to make room for all you know, feel, and desire.
If you don’t cast out either, Can wisdom and innocence co-exist in your soul?
I believe it.
