Our experiences teach us how we’re to live.
The adult populations of this world create
The conditions for nurturing our little ones.
We can raise them like rugged cowboys with their guns
In an atmosphere toxic and fervent in hate
So they learn that it’s righteous to be aggressive.
What children are born into is of our making.
Each new generation experiences more
Of a challenge adjusting. Children under stress
Are so because the world that they know is a mess.
Where do they find the knowing to love and adore?
The answer we embellish in our awaking.
The issue of self-worth is a big one these days.
So it is most important to teach kids that they,
By the mere fact that they exist, are powerful
In creating their realities. Skip the bull
About having to struggle and toil through the day.
For each thing that they do shower them with much praise.
At times they may not be ready for the advice
That is given them. Do but the best that you can
To create an environment that will allow
For loving understanding in the here and now.
No single person is lesser or greater than
Any other. From there, it’s a roll of the dice.
