Illusion

Young and beautiful,
old and wise,
Gentle and naive.
Simple human traits.

Yet, all is just an illusion.

Young may we be,
Beautiful are we,
Yet we have no wings to fly.

Yet, all is just an illusion.

Old is the great,
Wise do we see,
Yet, no one is perfect.

Yet, all is just an illusion.

Gentle is the mothers touch,
Naive is the newbie,
Yet, they know little more than we do.

The thing I have to admit that I loved was the picture you chose. Very good choice. One thousand stars! * + 9,999 more stars.
