Ages of Life

Being a teenager,
I fought with identity,
And explored the world.
Becoming an adult,
I gained wisdom,
And realized,
That to fail…
Is the first attempt at learning.
Middle age taught me,
That every struggle is worth it,
And suffering is an opportunity.
Old age
Brought wisdom like fine wine,
And memories spanning the decades.
