Our youth should be happy.
It’s only fair
For them to see the beauty in the world,
Instead of the depths of our despair.
And as adults we learn to live,
Wrapped up in what we get.
Lock up our hearts,
To never forgive or forget.
Always judging one another
From our own personal tastes,
With hatred in our hearts,
We let our love go to waste.
And every sudden desire
Plagues us to our core,
A minute and it’s over now,
So we keep coming back for more.
While the society we live in thrives off our minds,
It enlightens us with its darkness; deceives us all the time.
And so we continue to turn a blind eye
To the mystery in our history;
The truth of our mankind.
There must be some piece in our past,
For a peace of the future.
We’re all in this together,
And by now we should know better;
This doesn’t have to last.
But alas, such is the curse of being an adult,
No mommy or daddy to tell you anymore it’s not okay to insult
Others for their short-comings, ‘cus it’s all a part of life,
And not to dwell in vanity and add flame to the strife
That is now our reality.
But it kinda makes me angry to think why a child can’t be
All that he wants to be in our society;
If he decides the face he sees
Is who he really wants to be,
And to make his dreams come true
‘Cus if he differs from you and me,
He’s bound to brace a storm,
Spited by his peers who are all willing and able
To conform to the shoes that they’re filling;
This charade is now but a medieval tirade,
And no one’s safe.
But let the youth stay happy,
Take away their pain.
Let them free to laugh and play,
To escape a life in vain.
I won’t complain,
And I won’t doubt,
That they’re ignorant to what this life’s about.
And we can stay jaded –
But let them be happy;
That is our duty.
Let’s not confuse the hatred we’ve created
With their world and all of its untainted beauty.
