To My Younger Self


Old woman with young woman

I once was you before you were me.

If I’d known then, what I know now,

I would have told you this:

Remember your creator

in the days of youth,

And listen to

Your parents

Stories,

For

Times

Will come

When you will

Wish you had done

All of that and more.

I would have told you

To plan well for your future

Since someday you would grow old,

Wish you had, but it would be too late.
