I think my youth is lost only when I think like a “modern man”...

I think my youth is lost only when I think like a “modern man”:
When pleasure and “experience” lead the way.
You cannot lose something you never had, they say.
A youth eternal or born dead,
Either way, the way out is blocked
In a vessel that needs not a way out
But welcomes the alternative.

Quite true, my friend. Quite true.
