There is this philosophy of rebelling, growing, developing and changing as one approaches maturity.
the skin is sagging,
the hair greys,
the mind decays,
the body dies slowly,
but the heart is ever illuminating,
the soul is ever-lasting,
the conscience is immortal.
we may die but our deeds remain.
our thoughts, our works are omnipotent.
a person may die but what he does, or tries to do if it is good enough, remain etched in the annals of history forever.
