Poem: Forever Young (Daily Prompt)

If there were a real Fountain of Youth, would you drink the water?

This is the first time I’ve attempted to write something based on a  Daily Prompt but, as I sit here, still awaiting news of how and when I can collect my van from the MOT test today (they’ve had it since Friday), I thought I’d give it a go. With a poem, naturally. I must also thank hastywords for directing my attention to this regular feature on WordPress. :-)

‘Forever Young’

It doesn’t have to be this way
Your future lies ahead
One path set out in front of you
This concrete hasn’t set

Please, find the strength
Within yourself
This way, with me
For better health

Remember LOST?
That mysterious land
With Richard Alpert
Immortality, from Jacob’s hand

The island’s gone
But there’s still hope
Just one more hill
And down the slope

We can go back
There is still time
We’ll start again
Forever, yours and mine

Please, take a sip
You must go first
I’ll be right behind you
Please, quench your thirst
