You spend childhood

Yearning to be old enough

To pave your own path.

Soon seventeen comes.

Opportunity arrives

And seventeen goes.

Age happens so fast

You barely notice the days,

Weeks, years passing by.

Time passes, as if

You are watching your own life

Fading day by day.

Inaction, regret

What you wanted is gone, with

The age seventeen.
