The Loss of Youth

Youth soars upwards

We love to go on to the next thing

Reach the next level

Until it starts to curve around

And we realize the arc is part of a circle

And that the end is in the beginning

And always was

And that is the truest loss of youth—

That shifting perspective from

Ever upward

To

Around and around—

And the fact that we were looking at it wrong

Doesn’t change the fact that we preferred it that way.

A lifetime of reconciliation to the truth

Will still never erase the longing for that simpler view.
