Why Is Today’s Generation So Misunderstood?


We are all quick to say that most of them are up to no good.
Take a look at all they see and learn at such an innocent age.
Our world today is filled with so much violence, sex and rage.

To many of them feel like it unfair,
that no one seems to care.
Not only about them, the world around them seen through their eyes, we fail to give them respect,
Especially when they hurt and are angered and feel they have an image to protect.

How many of us say that that today’s generation does not know their place.
These are the thoughts and words that come from all of us, and that is a disgrace.
We should not be so judgmental, we should how it feels to be courteous,
and what it means to be wise.
Then they might see the world through an Adults eyes.

Let us all take the time to find at least one child that is in need of love and attention,
it takes time and dedication.
Let us all pull together,
To show them, that they possess hidden talents that will help them feel better

Not only about themselves, but the world around them.
This will eliminate so much our world’s mistakes,
If we give all that it takes,
To give them positive role models, who’ll turn on the light.
That will give them a chance to live a life that is respectful and morally right.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
