Youth Today, Leader Tomorrow


Before teenage, life was day to day
Routine school, homework, hours of play
Teenage: less play, more hours of study
Exams, games, reading, hours in the library
School fun, stresses at term examinations
Youth's chaotic curve, muddled in confusions

Youth weaning, hastening adulthood
Bold, idealizations, quick swinging moods
Quick to anger, laughter and tears
Constant pressure from cliquish peers
Youthful ambitious selfish pursuits
Questioning handed-down truths

Newborn adults in streets of real life trials
Life's wisdom, baked from youthful ideals
Biographies and teachers influenced
Fresh graduates, lacking experience
Unprepared, facing harsh world, poker-faced
Ready to conquer niches, society established

Dreams alive, surge forward, spirit strong
Braving new paths ere now done wrong
Passion-driven tapping limitless potential
Impatient elders slowing change as usual
Suffocating creativity, cursing youth's age
Talents treasure vaults, store cutting edge
Youth as such become leaders of tomorrow
Pioneering frontiers as never seen before
Never pass off youth, their future hold
Dreamers born of youth, never get old.

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
