Youth is the only
hope of our world…
youth in all its ignorance
with its thoughts in a whirl…
not yet seeing
the wisdom of the ages
engraved there on history’s pages
Be gentle in your reproach and so…
guide them in the ways a child should go
Teach them respectfully to cope
for they are our tomorrow’s only hope…
