They say ‘You grow too old to dream’
They say that ‘You’re too young to know’
Yet say ‘You can do anything.’
So do I stay or do I grow?
For if I am too old to dream
my time here is already done.
And if I am too young to know
then teach me, so the rising sun
will never find me void of thought
as I look at the world through eyes
of what I’ve learned of love and wonder,
cynicism and surprise.
A jaded innocence possesses
all the years I’ve been alive;
still taking people at their word
though most of them are talking jive.
I’ll never get too old to dream.
I’ll never be too young to know.
I’ll keep exploring although it may seem
there’s nowhere left to go.
