Old is Sometimes Good

I’m sorry, but i have to say it–
You’re young.
“Why apologize?” you ask.
Because in saying that, I know the older
people understand what I mean–
and the younger ones, although they might think
they understand,
are clueless.

Dramatic irony.

That is not to say,
that you can not be wise–
wisdom is not age specific
You are, in fact,
a sage to some–
a kinder, older soul
who kicks the can
even before the old men

So what does it mean to be young?
Oh, a thousand times ten thousand
things could I be telling you.

Soon enough, you’ll grow
and then you’ll say
It’s so nice to grow old
