I Was Young Once

One of my aunts just had a bunch of old home movies converted to digital. Browsing through four hours of films I came across these thirty seconds from my mom and dad's wedding day. It inspired me to write this.

I Was Young Once

I was young once.
I relished in being
And strode to every conquest.
I pinned life by the shoulders.

I was young once.
That which I am, was.
That which I was is no longer.
Immutable destiny prevailed.

I was young once.
And I lived!
