The Peach to the Prune

The peach to the prune
the magnificent to the ruin 
the boy to the man 
and the girl to the gran.

We see the youth gain age
which can turn to rage 
maybe not quite wisdom
I wonder, what will I become?

From the petals of innocence 
with slow shuffling reluctance 
we gain more life, grow old 
and what comes exactly after that?

it's a secret none of us have been told.
