Sorry to be a downer,
I would not drink,
From the fountain.
I would take one bottle,
Fill it with the water,
Then destroy the fountain.
Then I would beg for forgiveness,
From whoever built/bestowed,
Humans are not meant to be immortal,
We need to learn to move on,
Being trapped in the world,
Is not only a gift,
But a curse.
The fountain would cause more trouble,
Than it is worth,
But I would take a bottle,
Not for me,
But cannot help myself.
I would tell my closest friends and family,
Those who I love them most,
But I would keep it low.
A fountain of eternal youth,
Should not be here,
In this place that thrives on change.
Do you really want to be young forever,
Be alive forever?
There is a reason nothing lasts forever.
The Fountain of Youth
I know you want to leave this place
Which has brought you so much pain
But I beg you
Drink from the fountain
Stay with me forever
We could travel the world
Nothing could stop us
I know life has hurt you
Let me make your wounds disappear
Let me help you get better
It may take a while,
But if you just listen to me,
We’ll have as long as we need
I love you
I don’t want to say goodbye
I don’t want to live on without you
There is no one else
I would rather be with
Let’s live to the end of the world
Let’s love until the end of time
You always said you want nothing
But for me to be happy
This would make me happy
I will never ask for anything else
Fountain of Internal Youth in the dead of a Desert.
The day was scorching the desert sand was hot to the touch her silver hair swayed in the wind as the hot desert air clung to her skin shadows casted under the wrinkles on her face as the sun beat down upon her she was attempting to get to her neighbors tent she was feeling her age today. On her way to the tent something quick and shiny caught her eye off in the distance to her left she shook her head and tried to talk herself out of investigating it's probably these old eyes playing tricks on me again keep walking she would say to herself but she couldn't shake the feeling of needing to go see to be sure so she headed left towards the rockey mountain side she ended up finding a cave with some shiny rocks that were glistening in the sun she let out a sigh just some pretty rocks now i will have to walk that much further just to get to the tent damn my foolish curiousity she scolded herself she took a moment and rested in the shade of the enterance of the cave and she could feel a cool breeze glide accross her cheek she took a deep breath in and then slowly let it out fully enjoying the coolness of it she rested a few moments more she quieted her mind and just listened to what was around her she could hear the wind blowing the she felt the cool rocks in the shadow of the cave and then a sound trickled ever so softly into her ear was that water she heard? she pushed herself away from the wall quickly and leaned in trying to hear it better is that actually water or her wishfull thinking? Damn her curiousity always got the best of her. before she could reason with herself she begain to walk deeper into the cave the sound becoming gradually louder as she became nearer and just then the sight of the nature made fountain overwhelmed her they hadn't found a good water source in months she quickly moved to the edge of it and filled her hads with the cool crisp water and pourd it into her mouth she could feel the cool water slide down her very dry throat down through her chest and settle in her stomach she closed her eyes and took it all in for a moment then took another drink she began to feel different no longer feeling her age of 70 in the hot desert but like a 20 year old on an adventure she assumed this was only due to her excitement and got up and ran to the tent to tell the others of what she had found not realizing that she had been rejuvinated inside and would eventually begin to look younger and they would all live forever.
The Fountain of Youth
I see you yearning for the fountain
But I tell you, you can live without it
Maybe beauty is not what you seek
But for mindless time to finally cease
I see the pain in your eyes
The days you try to make time die
It’s a “treatment” with no gain
Only a pointless endeavor that ends in pain
I’ve found the Fountain of Youth, you see
I’ll keep a glass for you, and me
But I’m afraid you can’t have it yet
It’s not a punishment, nor simple threat
I want you you back, how you were before
Not your looks nor striking allure
So before you take a sip I’ll see
That you really will come back to me.
The secret of internal youth
The secret of internal youth? I found it long ago, twinkling in the moonlight, amongst the sunburnt snow. I see the world quite differently, with innocent childlike eyes, no desire for a shiny screen, let me chase the fireflies. No career for me, no fine degree, no house, no car, no home, no Disney land to fence my dreams, across the world I’ll roam.
A pirate ship to take a trip to lands so far away, where fish can fly and mermaids sing as we dance across the bay. To ancient lands with castles tall and a horse for me to ride.We’ll set about upon our quest, with horse and hound besides. An aeroplane for me to fly, across endless skies I soar, A rocket ship and trusty crew the whole galaxy to explore.
this secret of internal youth I’ll gladly share with you
Its in my local library, don't you have one too?
there’s timeless worlds between the pages, go on take a look
You can be forever young inside a library book.
Who Would I Tell?
My family and friends. I wouldn’t tell anyone else, mainly because I don’t want the whole the world to be immortal. Also, I’d only tell my family and friends because I’d want someone to talk to when everyone else is gone.I’d also tell them because who doesn’t want to be young forever?
Then again, what would it be like to live for eternity? Would it be lonely, watching everyone die? Watching the world slowly disintegrate? Having to tell those you love bye? Maybe one life is enough for me. Maybe I won’t tell anyone and I will spare them a life of loneliness.
As a wise person once said, “Some people that have lived to be twenty have lived longer than those that live to be one hundred.”
I don't know. Maybe I'd want to die, to leave this terrible world behind. Then again, if I live long enough I might be able to make a diference in the world.
(I'm sorry if this doesn't make sense, I'm rambling. :) )
Join me. Lets see how this world end together. Join me in a everlasting life. There would never be a day where I wouldnt look to you with love. Join me, one day we could live without your brother harming your heart. Join me, and we could explore every inch of this world.
Join me... becasue I wouldnt want this life without you.
If I found the fountain of youth, I probably wouldn't tell that many people. If it had healing properties, I'd probably breach the subject to my mom first. I would give her the option of living forever or just alleviating the pain she's in sometimes. I would tell her first because my mom has a bunch of conditions including Lupus, Fibromyalgia, and Arthritis. I would maybe tell the rest of my family and not tell anyone else. Although eternal youth and immortality sounds excellent, without space to explore at the moment, the Earth would get overpopulated, and any immortal would get bored.
is it internal youth or eternal youth?
i'm already too old inside, bogged down by responsibilities i never wanted, horrors of living for an extended period of time.
i've never wanted to live forever
i've never wanted to live as long as i have currently
i don't want to outlive those i love, althought i know i will have to
i would drink a fountain of knowledge
that's what i need abundance of
that's what i want overflowing
