Old Age is Wasted on the Old

  • "Youth is wasted on the young".   Most of us have become familiar with this common and cliche'd adage. We understand it's sentiment.  "Oh!  If I knew then what I know now......!"

But it is not a truth. Youth ...and all of it's wonderful naivety...innocence...deserves it's time .  Old age is wasted on the old,  if they do not appreciate their time....
I would not take a day of that wonderful youth and scourge it with the obfuscation brought and burdened with time . Or take away the wonder of new experience...the fulfillment of learning...the recklessness and passion of love.
Old age is wasted on the old...if they are envious and unsatisfied with  their arrival there.  They can relish the experience that youth can only yearn for. This yours,  and can be had by no other.
