The wisdom of the unheard

The wisdom of the unheard You can’t think for yourself You’re too young to know best Decisions you make Always end in a mess You must learn just to listen You can’t have a say Adults know better So, follow their way The script it is written So do what you’re told Don’t question the wisdom Of those who are old Knowing the right way Takes many years No place in this world For those childish ideas Like; don’t make the rich richer While the poor starve and dies Stop politicians From telling those lies You can only have peace If you don’t have a gun This wisdom is lost When you’re no longer young

"and a little child shall lead them" What of that? This poem reminds me of that, and the value of THINKING about what is happening, and finding our voices. Thank you Robert.
