poem

"When I can look life in the eyes,
grown calm and very coldly wise,
life will have given me the truth,
and taken in exchange-my youth."

Sara Teasdale

Personally, I think the truth is highly oiver-rated. Especially in comparison with youth.

Hmmm. I have mixed emotions about this--I have grown relatively calm, but always question my wisdom which is fraught with emotion. My youth is long gone except for the flames I carry in my heart that can occasionally set me on fire still.
