How is youth wasted on the young?
By having the time of their lives?
Or by not?
By not learning to be adults?
Or by forgetting to be young and reckless?
Who gets to decide?
The old who vaguely remember their youth?
The young who don’t know what it is to be old, even if they are told?
Is time wasted because you did what you wanted rather than what you needed?
Or is it when you are forced to do things you never imagined you would do?
When you say you’ve wasted time, do you instead mean that you didn’t live a balanced life searching for meaning?
