A Shell of their Dream

Danger

Up the hill they went
Oblivious of imminent danger
'I'm in my elements'
so they triumphantly declared
'Danger is my forte'
Can they be blamed?
The foolhardy ventured out
Inexperienced youthful vigor
Let them be!
The process of learning
Take many forms
All the more richer
In facing the world
All that they have gone through
The test of time
The test of nerves
Experience is what counts

A shell of their own self
To better equip one's own!
