The Younger You
Always young as you can be
Tender loving lasses and lads,
Enjoying life fully, carefree
While letting no problems trespass.
This era of yours will never come back
So be yourself, not let others lead,
Hang out, dress up and go out in a pack
What others may say you need not heed.
You're Strong and Smart and Sugar and Saint,
You're Our past, present and future,
So fill your lives with joy and paint
And consider pains just a suture.
The world today's a cruel, gruesome place,
Be mindful of what you watch and play
For the younger you loves beauty and grace
So to the evil you'll always fall prey.
Murder, rape, crime , abduction is all that you hear,
Despite of age you need to live in fear
Be wise when choices are made oh dear,
For hurt comes most from those who are near.
The world's at your fingertips today,
It's made life like shopping from Hudson Bay
But technowise isn't always nice
At times it'll take you by surprise.
Split not based on race,cast or creed,
All of us are from mankind breed
Entertain yourselves with music and dance
To be a youth there's no second chance.
