Modern Youth - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Packed with energy
Bubbling with enthusiasm
Ready to take any risk
Wanting to learn a lot and fast
Hurrying to stand on own legs
Refusing to take advice
Disobedient unto elders
Living in a world of own creation
Ambitious and dreamy
Ready to scale dizzy heights
Discarding traditions and orthodox beliefs
Curious to experience and experiment
Tending towards independence and self-reliance
Aiming to pull off new feats
Following new trends and fashions
Eking a fast life on fast foods
Yearning to prove everything scientifically
Relegating God to the backyard
Relying on own efforts, strength and skills
Rushing to make a fast buck big
Undaunted, determined and often reckless
Trying for the unseen stars but blind to the moon's beauty
Smart and very intelligent
Not carried away by opinions or arguments
Pegging price of life lower than life's achievements
Waiting to accomplish, come what may!
Free and conscious of rights
Nevertheless, a marvel in tune with the modern times.
