Old Soul

Giving heed to age and ideas that last 
And not hearing the latest craze.
Inspired by substance of distant past
And not things birthed in recent days.

Finding substance in what brings joy and tears
Dismissing emptiness of youth.
Wisdom to look beyond lived life and years
Knowing that's where exists the truth.

Respecting Icons, Heroes, Love and Hell
Wishing all others would do the same.
Instead of living empty inside a hollow shell 

With thoughts that life is just a game.

Deferring to things and heroes proven true 

Refusal to playing the latest role. 
Not a care of what they might think of you
That's why I love your rare "Old Soul".
