New Dreams

Like a punch to the gut
We suddenly realize
Our youth has vanished
To days long gone by
Only etched in memory
Wasted at the time
In belief of immortality
And many years ahead
To accomplish and do
All that we put off
For a better tomorrow
Now with aching muscles
Not enough hours
To complete our tasks
Our dreams have wondered
Far, far away
To the sunnier shores
Of young risk-takers
But do not write yourself off
It’s never too late
For new dreams to come true
