Letter to a 16yr old

Wish I could  put an old head on young shoulders
Would love you to be able to see
show you that how  you live your life
is what you  leave as a legacy

Any mess your generation makes
in the way the world is run and how it lives
Is what you leave for others to sort out
not an easy task, to make sure it does survive

So always think, make sure your actions
are the best that you can do
Hmmm starting with your bedroom
Or shall I de-clutter that for you?
