Green is Gold

We were


Were naive, were foolish, were stupid –

But there we were


Newfound weaned from the ignorance of childhood

Caressed by the tenderness of dissipating motherhood.

Having no claim on the world

But that of responsibility.

Having no say in the world

But “repeat after me”.

Making mistakes beyond number

Merciful green blunders;

To grow

To mature

To one day look back in wonder.

We were green,

We were gold,

We were
