Youths Of Today

Some youths of today have no care in the world.
They live each day not thinking about the next day.
Every thought and experience seems so unbearable.
So what's the first thing in mind?
They put their head in the sand.

Life should be taken one day at a time,
Tackling everything with the Lord.
He never give you what you can't bear.
Walk and He walks with you.
If you should faint, He carries you.

Don't feel alone in this big world.
He promised He'll never leave nor forsake.
Take a deep breath, breathe.....
Think and reason and make sense of what is.
If needed, sit with a friend that could listen
And possibly help through those confusing times.

Life's too precious to stay stuck in the sand.
Take example of others making right choices.
Hang on to circles that will get you along
To big places that never cross your mind.
Some youths of today are choosing right paths.

Some youths of today have no care in the world. Some youths of today are choosing right paths. Like God, goodness and badness are also ancient., but majority consists of bad men.
We need people who can connect with young people today- they are surrounded by low-life stars and businessmen's minions promoting sex, drugs, drinking, disrespect for anybody but themselves. It is so hard to stand up to peer pressure - -they filet the independent thinkers in schools these days. Well-chosen topic.
You have very rightly observed today's youth and their modern thoughts and attitudes. They live each day not thinking about the next day and such attitude provokes thought entirely. Life is precious. All should feel this and keep trust on God. Some youths who are choosing right path are very wise and righteous. An excellent poem is nicely penned...10
