Youth

Reset

As the water ripples,

you shed a layer

dropping the thoughts

of many a night.

A lightness starts

as breathing eases

and all is restored

with water’s kind healing.

Good Night

Who are you to know

the insides of me?

Why should you see

the thoughts that filter through?

You’re nothing but

a passing moment.

Already prepared

with a goodbye speech,

how the night was fun,

but now the sun has risen.

Quote: John Hughes – The Breakfast Club

“Brian: Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. But we think you’re crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us—in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain…

Andrew: …and an athlete…

Allison: …and a basket case…

Claire: …a princess…

John: …and a criminal.

Brian: Does that answer your question? Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club.”

Quote: Evelyn Waugh – Brideshead Revisited 

“The languor of Youth – how unique and quintessential it is! How quickly, how irrecoverably, lost! The zest, the generous affections, the illusions, the despair, all the traditional attributes of Youth – all save this come and go with us through life…These things are a part of life itself; but languor – the relaxation of yet unwearied sinews, the mind sequestered and self-regarding, the sun standing still in the heavens and the earth throbbing to our own pulse – that belongs to Youth alone and dies with it.”
