Truth Of Most Youth Today! - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Today’s youth takes a warring path;
They don’t believe even the truth;
They love to do things opposite;
They want to learn all by themselves.

They take on risks that adults won’t;
They love glamour and pomp and show;
They want to lead an easy life;
They question almost anything.

They love to take the narrow lanes;
They don’t like to be ever blamed;
They will not heed to good advice;
They are afraid of ones with clout.

They are an easy prey to vice;
They lose their virtues very fast;
They wish to enjoy life early;
They disobey their parents too.

They think they can live on their own;
They trust their human strength alone;
They are a group that’s misguided;
They cannot think the ‘pros and cons’.

They will not take ev’n things well-said;
They think they are infallible;
They want to be just left alone;
They wish to pry in danger’s mouth.

They are a dis-satisfied lot;
They argue over many things;
They will not learn from others’ faults;
They want to see and feel all things.

They feel they can achieve all things;
They put God in the backyard fast;
They waste their precious time and life;
They question even God at times!
