Once a Man, Twice a Child

They say that when you’re getting older you tend to speak your mind

But since you’re getting younger, those are the things you leave behind

They say that when you’re getting older you remember everything you did

But since you’re getting younger, from you some things are hid

They say that when you’re getting older you tend to have regrets

But since you’re getting younger, there’s no remorse to resurrect

They say that when you’re getting older you ponder all that’s happened in your life

But since you’re getting younger, the fulfillment of your present needs will just about suffice

They say that when you’re getting older you make peace with your gray hairs

But since you’re getting younger, they’re the least of all your cares

They say that when you’re getting older you think about that final step

But since you’re getting younger, about nothing will you be perplexed.
