Wasted Youth

 

Eat and be merry

A glass of wine with cherry

Sparkling in eyes

Of vibrant young

 

Nothing of concern

Is discerned

Staring in bottom

Of bottle of booze

 

Youthful fun

Faded memories

Looking back on

Wasteful youthfulness

 

Experience, knowledge

Deep rooted

Produced wisdom

From bottom of the barrel

Editing stage:

so very true! Enjoyed the read, another excellent piece of writing.

"Death" is nonsense: what is there to die?
"Life"? How could " life" "die"? That is a contradiction
in terms. Can "light" become "darkness"?
"Light" can only cease to be apparent
