Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

Even celebrities are not immune to the effects of time. Celebrities depend heavily on their appearance and, to the outside world, it looks as though they drank from the fountain of youth. From awkward to red carpet superstars, Hollywood has seen some astonishing transformations. Check out to see how your favorite celebrities looked in their younger days and how they grew into their glamorous selves.

Ah, yes, the good old days of Demi Lovato starring alongside the Jonas Brothers in Camp Rock. We all love and miss that Demi! But did you know that Demi got her start as a child star on the television show Barney & Friends?

She first became famous for starring in the Disney show Shake It Up alongside Zendaya. This look she has going on is so early 2000s.

Before she was sitting pretty on the top of Billboard charts, Katy Perry was just another young girl with a hope and a dream. Not many know this about her, but Katy Perry actually taught herself how to play the guitar. Oh yeah, and another fun fact: her parents are both pastors. Yes, we’re shocked too.
