When I am 65 with my silvery hair
Under the light of the moon and the stars I shall dance
Only then shall I find wisdom in my lifes misfortunes
Only then will I find joy among the midst of my work
Only then

When I am 65 with my eyes full of sorrow
I will think back on the chances I chose to pass up
Only to learn some risks were worth taking
Only to realize I was too scared to notice

But since Iím 15, I still have a chance
Now is the time to be daring and bold
Now is the time to live life to its fullest
Now is the time to have fun, be wild and to stop and smell the roses
So when I am 65, I can sit down and reflect on all my cherished memories

Now that I am 65, I look back with joy etched deep into my heart and soul
I have no regrets
I think of my mistakes and I laugh
I think of all Iíve been through and I cry
I think of all Iíve accomplished and I canít help but smile
Now that I am 65

Wisdom...
In one so young is a breath of fresh air...

I can only hope the rest of your generation will be as wise as you seem to be before they are too much older. The world would be a better place...

Don't loose sight of your goal, spread it to others. One person CAN make a difference...

Very well done and kudos to you...

*blushes*
wow... you guys are sooooooo nice! I'm really glad you liked my poem. Another project assigned to me in English class.. I have to thank my English teacher for helping me in this poem. She pushed me to make it the best I can. When she assigned this to us.. she wanted us to envision our selves as when we where old based off a poem by Jenny Joseph called the Warning. Again, I wanted to thank everyone for the comments and constructive criticism on my poems and I hope I can continue to satisfy your taste in writing! Much love to you all! Muah!
