Keep Them Encouraged - Poem by Sylvia Loven Carter

They stand and sit around
talking, joking
making fun of each other and total strangers....
cars going by too fast and sometimes too slow
who are they

They're ordinary, everyday
different colors, human people they are our children
soon becoming adults Lets keep them encouraged
whether they are ours or not Lets keep them encouraged

Let stop the creation of more defeated before they get started human-beings
living in seemingly defeated, situations and conditions

Lets keep them encouraged our young people have so many talents
and energy to spare Lets keep them encouraged.
