Young People Are:

The future of our world
Flowers yet unfurled
Boundless energies of life
Potentials for love or strife.

Protégées yet untapped
Diamonds to be unwrapped
Sometimes treated with contempt
Dreams yet to be dreamt

Poet's Notes about The Poem

“Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for their elders and love chatter in place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the room; they contradict their parents, chatter before company; gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers.”
