A Rejection of the Fountain of Youth

A Rejection of the Fountain of Youth

I would never want to live forever

To cease aging

To exist eternally

In the moment you drink

From that well spring of youth

You step out of time

You cease to be a part of its cycle

You are no longer a participant of life

Simply an observer of it

Watching friends and loved ones

Age and grow

And eventually move on 

Without you

And for the rest of time

You must stand apart

Forever on the sidelines

Removed from the game

And all you can do is watch

As life passes you by
