Old Souls

I know many an old soul
equipped to bear a load
they're filled with wisdom
long before they're age old
their young sparkling eyes-
not a worry yet engraved
bear some quiet truths untold
for fear of old ones cold
some shut their ears
and scorn them away
e'en young David's youth
a reproach to his anointed place
God will use the young
He will use the small
the unexpected
scorned broken used-
we should wipe the envy from our eyes
unstop our pride blocked ears
and consider for the sake of truth
the wisdom of the young old soul
