Why elders orders children everytime
Can't they do themselves
Do't care, we are busy or spare

Why they totally depend upon children
Can't they do themselves
Do't care, we are happy or sad

Why elders always advise us early to bed, early to rise
Can't they follow themselves these advises
Do't care we want or not

Why elders have hard attitude
Can't they keep soft attitude
Do't care, what problems we have

Why elders interfere into our matters
Can't they understand our wishes
Do't care, we have equal rights

Why elders apply restrictions to us
Can't they apply to theirselves
Do't care, we need liberty

Listen boys
You are our future
I am favour of you
I appeal to the elders
To adopt postive and constructive
Attitude about children

    I love Gibran's answer to your poems question as an elder, I have my answer too, When we have not lived our life to the fullest, we channel our desire through children.Thus, it is life longing for its life to live.Life have difficulties letting life live life its way. read my 'A Mother's Collection of: Tissues, Bones, and Blood. dedicated to my four children whom I love dearly for i know they did not choose me as their mother, yet they're pleased with the choice I made.

    abdul - Yes, you are right to say that children have rights too. If you read Gibran he stated 'Your children are not your children, but life's longing for itself.' I am glad you saw us both standing on a hill with children in a dream. That is a powerful and hopeful vision.

    Please keep writing!
