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.

Fathima,Welcome to Poetry soup, I hope you enjoy the community. Here, you will find friendly poets who enjoy supporting one another. I myself, enjoy reading and commenting those who want to be read. The only time I give constructive criticism is when a poet desires it. However, if for some reason the poem is not my field I will guide you to someone who is more qualified than I. Stop by and read one of my poems if you like. My poems are not perfect, but I have a feeling you might like one. I encourage you to check out the contest page and read to receive comments. Tell me a little about your poetic skills if you like. It will be my pleasure to follow and read every poem you post from here on :) We are Lucky To Have you. Your New Poet Friend @-> LINDA <-@

Hey Linda, i have no words to say how happy i am as i read this. I would love to have my poems read. Do suggest anything i can do to make it better. I'm no pro. I am glad if i can be backed by experienced poets. I used to teach language and literature. But now a stay at home mum. So I do this apart from taking care of my lil one. I started writing poems just a few months back. I let the whole poem flow within my mind and then type it out and save it before I've forgotten. It's random thought that is turned into poems. I'm not a sit and pen person. Will definitely look into your poems when time permits.
