What business in this magic of life!
Such guise age does creep through endless seasons;
I cannot help think of days before wife,
To a place where living need no reasons;
O, infinities of beautiful nothings,
Realistic dream land of wasteful days,
Nights of madness and little somethings,
Afternoons under such warm summer rays,
The fondest of Sawyer-istic adventures,
Intangible figurative-s of mind,
Great Perhaps-es, Labyrinths, misadventures,
To think, such a complex self I did find.
These are The Great Green beacons of youth old sport!
And I so fond, will never leave this port.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

  You're super talented. You write like an expert! Such fun! I rejoiced reading that. I was amazing. firstly you said "Sawyer-istic" which was super-awesomist and then well..everything,.. I like how you're trying to convey all those wonderful vagabondages...And the last two lines are beautiful! Keep Posting!

The theme was in the tittle :p and nope still a teen - everyone who grows up self aware should have some sort of jovial understanding of the importance of youth and discovering one's self. Maybe the poem is vague in the way you have to search for a meaning and think cerberally about it, but not in the way of undefined clarity. I think you need to look at it in a more detailed way and reflect on your experiences.

You write as if from so much experience, making me wonder if you are still only a teen! Your style of writing is unique, and quite sophesticated, bu your message, i feel wasn't all that clearly carried through. 3/5!
