Too Young To Know - Poem by Elena Plotkin
I tell youth now,
as I was once told.
'You're too young to know,
what life beholds.
Too young to understand,
What disappointment means,
Too inexperienced to comprehend,
the nature of unfulfilled dreams.
Too immature to attempt to realize,
The world I have seen with these two eyes.'
And so I preach these words to all youth about,
Bearing not a single shred of self doubt,
That my well-meant words mean nothing to them today,
but will when they recite them too someday.
