Fantasy, Wisdom and Age

Wandering the unchangeable path of my yesterdays
Looking longingly at a captured youth in photographs
Distant memories of a life full of dreams and wishes
Still in those days covered in thick layers of dust
Only to surrender and bless them for their lessons
Leave them behind in their deceiving remembered glory
Nothing stopping the matured and wiser being that is here
Taking one step at a time walking in sensible shoes
Towards achieving that which will bring today’s person joy
Not for the benefit or satisfaction of anybody but myself
More insightful than then with life experiences
I can bring sagacious choices to a successful fruition
Become the revered venerable elders of the younger me
But still believe in mermaids, fairies and magic
And the possibilities of anything no matter my age
