Life by foreverhope

“Life” by foreverhope

You know you’re young when

you can’t believe you don’t have a pile of waiting presents

when you dream of tooth fairies and boogie monsters

when you get cross because someone taught you a lesson

You know you’re growing up when

you aren’t shielded from the world anymore

when you dream of relationships and love

when you want to find out what you’re in store for

You know you’re old when

you don’t have the strength to deal with the corruption

when you dream of a peaceful life at home

when you smile at the children who wave to you

and remember the time when you were young

But you only know you’ve lived when

You’ve let go of your fears

when you took a chance at your dreams

when you learned to be happy

when big or small, you’ve made a difference
