Mentor

by joetwo

They asked me to mentor

To teach, to pass on my knowledge, my experience

To the next generation

The new people

Does it matter that I still consider myself amongst them

That I still think that I am young

That my mind rebels at the thought of ageing

That I shiver at the thought I am closer to thirty than twenty

But here I am at this juncture

Being asked to mentor

To act the adult

To be the responsible one

When all I want to be is still young
