Youth - Our Future


Young, jaunty and promising
Often aggressive and anxious
Under pressure; always curious
Tension of choosing the right path
Have the power to change the world

I find the positive outlook of young people today to be very inspiring. You haven't been made bitter like my generation. Keep up your positive outlook and I will try to be open to receiving. Best, M.

So true! Very clever capture - through youth, you've captured the essence of youth. The construction, the word choice - all lead to a pleasant analysis.

Very well done

Steve Isaak said...

Interesting poem structure - not one I'd use, it's too restricting for me - but you make it work, in a theme-tight, intriguing read fashion. :)

You have truly captured that strange time of youth excellently! Hope they can grab hold of that promise and cultivate to make those changes in the world. Nice One Shot!
