BECAUSE I AM YOUNG…

Because I am young,

I am learning to live.

Day by day, faced with obstacles,

Both seen and unseen.

Because I am young,

I am learning to breathe.

Day by day, faced with hope,

That tomorrow will bring joy.

Because I am young,

I can be lazy,

I believe that I have time,

But time is a servant to no one.

Because I am young,

I can be anxious.

Anxious of the unknown.

Because I am young,

I stay enthusiastic,

What will today teach?

I stay expectant,

What will today bring?

Because I am young,

I dream.

Dream for a brighter future,

Dream for a peaceful tomorrow,

Dream for a stress-free life,

Dream to walk with God more.

Because I am young,

My mind is yet to be fully shaped.

Sieving off the unnecessary,

And retaining the necessary.

Because I am young,

I am learning, un-learning and re-learning.

Learning to succeed,

Learning to be free,

Learning to have fun,

Learning to travel,

Learning to make friends,

Learning to grow spiritually,

Because I am young, I am learning to live.
