How could I have held the world in the palm of my hand
Only to discover that the world doesn’t need my hand?

Where was the glaring flash…
… the ominous rumble?
…that portent that spoke of a universe
That no longer revolved around me?

Is it wisdom that makes me yearn for the naiveté of youth
Or is it envy?

  1. Wisdom or youth?
    Wisdom comes from our experiences which make life easier.
    Youth has the world of lessons to be learned with some coming from the road of hard knocks.
    With wisdom you have hopefully gained the respect of your colleagues and managers.
    Youth has a lot to learn and has yet to learn how to deal with stress and adversity.
    I will keep wisdom over youth.
