Kids These Days

Poem by: Tesseth

Summary

Too many times adults judge "kids these days"...probably just as they were judged when they were younger.
You'd think they'd learn...
I respect some of these kids. I respect their courage to be different.

"Kids these days"
Words repeated thru generations

Two perspectives
Of a span of ages
Two viewpoints
From life's broad stages

You see different, strange, odd
They see different, unique, & strong

You think their hairstyles absurd
They think their hairstyles worth more than words

You see outfits that are loud & weird
They see outfits that express what they feel

You stare & think "what‘s their problem?"
They stare & think "glad I'm not them"

Look at it this way
Just this once...
They're good kids,
They aren't really "punks"

They search & test
For who they are
They'll live & learn
(Don't you remember?)
This "growing up" stuff's hard

It's a mystery
Who they'll become
You're just a bystander
Of a fascinating conundrum

They aren't conforming to what you expect
But right there, that's something
You have got to respect

Courage to be different
Maybe that's what you should see
Courage to stand for something
That says a lot to me.
