When I was young, seems everything intrigued From the morning sun, to the evening breeze Whether, working the farm, till I was fatigued or learning the secrets of earth, like genetic disease My journey in life, took many turns and twists forming my opinions, of how life is best lived preserve the earth, so children know what exists Free to walk, see and learn concepts, yet derived I see children as the wealth, to guard and preserve Think of others not oneself, a better man will emerge False idols say, follow the path to the federal reserve If silver or gold is wealth, this curse you can't purge Teach all our children, to learn from their elders advice, before, deciding their path or worth, know the price Contest entry for: "If I didn't think what I think, here's what I'd think"
