The fountain from where hopes and dreams flow;
The place where old friendships and old enemies begin;
The time of love that can teach forgiveness and reconciliation, or grudges and divisions;
The land where the human being grows into adulthood.
They say do not waste, but treasure it;
Too many do not get here, and so few make it past;
This is the time to learn, travel, and understand the world;
Tomorrow may not come, and if it does a person could already be set in their ways.
Youth is for today;
Youth cares not for the past, and only done for the future;
Youth is in the present, youth is the now;
Forgive in the now, learn from now, and live in the now.
Welcome to the now of youth!
