Young Soul

When you’re a young soul

You never lose wonder for experiences – new and familiar

Old souls break your heart with their cynicism and obsession with tradition

But you always bounce back and shine on when your mind is young

Some people see the glow and may wonder where it comes from

Old souls project their nature onto you, but the real ones know what your desires are

Don’t let anyone age you before your time

Instead, choose one who will stay young with you

Or go it alone when needed



  1. Beautiful post, Sara. You have vividly highlighted the importance of maintaining a youthful perspective, even as we grow older. It is really disheartening to encounter cynicism from those who have lost their sense of wonder. But we must remain open to new experiences and maintain our enthusiasm for life, regardless of our age. Most importantly, we should surround ourselves with people who share this outlook, otherwise we should go our own way

  2. I am not sure this is entirely related to your post, but I have this buddhist verse posted by my desk:

    If for company you cannot find a wise and prudent friend who leads a good life, then, like a king who leaves behind a conquered kingdom, or like a lone elephant in the elephant forest, you should go your way alone.

    Better it is to live alone; there is no fellowship with a fool. Live alone and do no evil; be carefree like an elephant in the elephant forest.
