    Yesterday when I was young...

    I'm 32, and believe me getting here is faster than I ever imagine..

    Yesterday when I was young
    the taste of life was sweet as rain upon my tongue.
    I treated at life as if it were a foolish game,
    the way the evening breeze may tease a candle flame.
    The thousand dreams I dreamed, the splendid things I planned
    I always built alas on weak and shifting sand.
    I lived by night and shunned the naked light of the day
    and only now I see how the years ran away.

    Yesterday when I was young
    so many happy songs were waiting to be sung,
    so many wayward pleasures lay in store for me
    and so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see.
    I ran so fast that time and youth at last ran out,
    I never stopped to think what life was all about
    and every conversation I can now recall
    concerned itself with me and nothing else at all.

    Yesterday the moon was blue
    and every crazy day brought something new to do.
    I used my magic age as if it were a wand
    and never saw the waste and emptiness beyond.
    The game of love I played with arrogance and pride
    and every flame I lit too quickly died.
    The friends I made all seemed somehow to drift away
    and only I am left on stage to end the play.
    There are so many songs in me that won't be sung,
    I feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue.
    The time has come for me to pay for yesterday when I was young.

    ^ This seems the best section to put it don't you think... there's no place for poems

    Did you write this yourself? I think it's fantastic
