Children Of Our Time
Author: Tim Kitchen


They look up above to the skies
with their young and innocent eyes.
Little children not really knowing
where their young lives are going.
Some are born of kings and queens
others just of people with dreams.
Some are born into families so poor
others destined for riches and more.

Adolescence will arrive out of the blue
their bodies will change, they will too!
Many will become technology slaves
and adopt some rather strange ways.
Boys will see girls, in a different light
and dream of them deep into the night.
Boys will wear clothing with a hood
girls will say they’re misunderstood.

They’ll be arrogant, just wanting fun
a bit like us, when we were young.
Some may learn from what they see
in the ways of people like you and me.
But they all deserve a chance in life
even just to be a good husband or wife.
To find happiness in whatever they do
and to know success and humility too.

nice poem Tim

Time certainly flies. Every now and then I wish I could go back to my childhood days - just to grow up all over again. Just for a moment, before I'd wish to be my current age again.
