Knowledge And Power

Poem By Matthew Maas

I am sitting in the back of the bus
Observing the children play
With the weather just gorgeous
On a very lovely day
A mother of two
Tries to discipline her son
He just would not listen
He just wanted to have fun
As the mother told him to sit down
He raised his foot at her
I couldn't believe what I saw
I was left in a stare
Where is the respect
Has this boy lost his mind
The situation is looking bleak
As the boy's behavior is so unkind

Live is ever evolving and it appears to be getting worse, lack of respect. No history of self. Great poem.

my hand, for the future lies within my grip.
With you a hold of my finger tips of power, you
