Studying meson structures is essential for gaining insights into the nonperturbative nature of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD). This study will focus on calculating the decay constant and distribution amplitudes (DAs) of unflavored light mesons (π and ρ) in the 1S and 2S states using the Light Front Quark Model. This study utilizes the QCD-motivated Hamiltonian, taking into account both contact and smeared spin-spin interactions. The two lowest harmonic oscillator bases are employed in this work to achieve improved results for the 2S states. The study found the optimal mixing parameter in basis expansion coefficients to be θ = 10°. Light meson properties, including the mass spectrum, decay constant, and twist-2 DAs, are then predicted using model parameters fixed through the variational principle. While the contact spin-spin interaction yields poor accuracy, the results from the smeared interaction generally agree well with experimental data and other theoretical models with MeV and MeV in the mixed state. Unlike the case for the 1S state, it should be noted that the properties of the 2S state are sensitive to the mixing parameter θ. In addition, we observe that the decay constant for ρ(2S) is MeV. While for π(2S) the decay constant is extremely small with the value of MeV, which is mainly due to the dynamical chiral symmetry breaking.
