Children

Naivety

is a strength

in youth

for if not for

naivety

goals would not

be possible.

Children dream of aspects

they wish to achieve.

Do not stop

their fantasies.

If they set

their minds

upon a goal

but have the steps

confused

if you feed

them with

courage and

inspiration

they will find a way.

People stop

our futures

due to lack

of encouragement.

If our youth

is inspired

to be the best

and told positivity

and seen success

through our happiness

they have more

hope to be better

then we are.

If you don't have

much and want more

don't show them

frustration

be feeling bad

for what you don't have.

Be glad for

what you have.

I don't have much-

everything I have is used

but I'm grateful

for every piece

of my life

because it's mine.

Take pride in

yourself

inside and out

and they will

adopt those feelings

in their own young lives.

Our children

deserve

to be happy and successful

to make our country

strong and powerful again.
