We need to listen to our children, really pay attention to what they are not saying, to be really able to understand them. A poem.
Our children…our youth, let’s talk to them and listen ‘more’.
Outer behaviour is all, we try to ‘cure’;
There’s more behind , … we need to ‘explore’ .
Let them cry, laugh and express, all they want to ‘pour’;
As caregivers and mentors, … we must never close any ‘door’.
We are by their side, for them to share ‘more’;
And of this, let them be very ‘sure’.
This alone, can help their present and future,
Become safe and ‘secure’!
Our children … our youth, let’s talk to them and listen ‘more’.
There’s enough in this world, that tries to ‘ allure’…
Even the more ‘mature’…
Every mistake can be made good, please do ‘reassure’!
Our children… our youth, let’s talk to them and listen ‘more’.
What they become to impress others, is fashion no ‘more’.
What lies within and ‘pure’…
Is the true wealth, they need to ‘insure’.
An exam or contest…, whatever they ‘score’;
Happiness lies right where they are, and not elsewhere to ‘adore’.
Our children… our youth, let’s talk to them and listen ‘more’
It can be fun, but not a joke ‘anymore’;
Let this be real, and not a ‘folklore’…
Our children … our youth, let’s talk to them and listen ‘more’
