Immortal Youth

Immortal Youth

See them march on by, like time
Our blessed immortal youth
Robed in certainty and trust
They walk on, untouched by fate.

Safe from the fire, they move at will
Through the crater ridden land
And pass unscathed, the dark locale
Where others fell, to a killing hand

Certain their steps, as they stride on
Past the scars of falling mortar shell
In land torn by war, they go by
Untouched, where others fell

Their shield of years they carry proud
Protect by their youth from harm
Held in the hands, of all the gods
Immortal youth, forever charmed.
