Restlessness And Placidity

Restlessness in youth, placidity in the golden age... do these two conflict with the pace of motion that desolation can assuage? If being young means persisting in ambition, an event of gratification, venturing in fearless projects, taking risks and walking through Hell; is it worth the effort of being bold and press forward and bear the toll? Understand that it's an age to defy challenges without the fear to fail! We have pursued the same dreams and went to the extremes; however big or small they were; despite the outcome, they had that special virtue to nourish and ensue! They may have looked frail, unable to accomplish anything grand, but they were meant to prevail... in the process of being banned! Young adults have fragilities, they shun boredom and things that are old: they like to explore, to move forward with an unsurpassable vitality... ignoring tasks that seem unrealistic,' shocking us with their infantile mentality so raw, so curious, and so rejuvenating; never deny them to pursue their dreams while putting together ideas and performing multiple tasks: it's a sign of geniality! If we welcome them with open arms, reinstating the meaning of fondness: it'll be kind-hearted and sympathetic... how sensational is being altruistic! Encourage them in their aspirations, open for them the door to that world of imagination; it's a revolving door, we dreamed as they do... hold their hand and lead them to their future: they have the incredible ability to renew the source of their inspiration whenever they have rising doubts to invent something extraordinary and new! Their explanation is utterly feasible that to us seems nearly impossible! Had we stood by the many who failed, in their idealism would have been no cynicism; they mainly relied on us and were disillusioned by our cold shoulder when we expressed criticism! Had we understood them as good parents would, their transformation would have been accepted! Restless in youth, mindless of mistakes, voracious of knowledge, of discoveries that amaze... is anybody imagining the wrath of age as speedy as a bolt of lightning? Ah, that age is slowly advancing, hearing our painful cringing... that fear of losing our private, cozy space that can't be invaded by anybody; and still, we let selfishness dictate us to resist our compliance to amiability, to a feasible approach to the young ones and their source of vital creativity... that is of an inestimable value to us!

I agree Andrew. We need to encourage our youth…let them explore and create new and innovative projects that will leave us in wonder and awe. My grandchildren keep me young and amazed with what they come up with. We should not fear change but embrace it. A poem filled with wisdom. Blessings xxoo

Thank you for your comment, Connie. I wish I had had that advice and encouragement from my dad, only my mom gave me that. Youth is a fountain of joy, if lived well; we must encourage the young ones to pursue their dream and succeed. Have a wonderful evening.
