Running With Youth’s Naivety – a Poem on Sunday

Your sons and daughters will prophesy,  
your young men will see visions,
your old men will dream dreams.
Acts 2: 17

Oh to run with the naivety of youth,

To jump, dive

and explore

with abandon.

Oh to embrace and experience


To touch and feel its pleasures and joys.

Oh to try, fail and try again.

Oh to be blind to the cliffs and canyons

of indelible experiences.

Oh to run …

The old head says,


Be careful,



The old head remembers the pain

of jumping, running and diving.

The sorrow of embracing.

The old head wishes

that once again,

he could run with the naivety

of youth.
