    When you are young,
they will treat you with the softness of spring.
They will guide you through the winter winds and
over snowy hills, admiring the brilliance of your
midday innocence; pulling daisies from the earth
just to place them in your hair. And they will
whisper to each other of how beautiful you are.
    When you grow older,
they will treat you with the indifferences of autumn.
They will urge you from the complacency of your own
fleeting fulfillments, and they will watch your
brilliance fade with the swiftness of the sky. You
will shed your fragile childhood with the colors of
the trees, and you will learn to face the winter winds
without their guiding arms. And they will whisper to
each other of how beautiful you are.
    When you are grown,
they will treat you with the coldness of winter. They
will leave you bare and naked before the ravenous wolves,
expecting you to fend for your own forgotten brilliance,
asking why you've kept those wilting daisies in your hair.
They will whisper through the icy winds of how fortunate you
are, to have one time danced and sung beneath the softness
of the spring; to have one time lived with midday brilliance
beaming from your face. and I swear that they will whisper
of how beautiful you once were.

And how beautiful you always will be.  Age only changes beauty, it does not erase it.  :)

This was just beautiful. I especially loved how you compared it to the passing time; Spring, Summer, Autum, and Winter, to properly get the reader to feel as if they are moving. Everyone at one point is the person smiling and laughing while daisies are being put in their hair, the ones who cling onto them long after they've died, clinging to those simple moments in the sun that make you smile even today.

Take the first paragraph... that section of a person's life... What would happen if you never lost that?
HoldTheNoise Oct 4, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Some don't. And I think those people miss out on a great deal of life ....

No... like... if they didn't lose all of it, but still progressed. Like they developed differently.
