Last Generation - Poem by gershon hepner

The last generation of children to identify
with adults long has passed,
and all their successors who are older than them defy
their elders as half-assed.
To reach them you have to go down to their level and, trusting, try
to be a child once more,
since when you grow old you will be just like one––don’t wait till you die.
but be one long before.
