Not only heard but also seen,

Kids these days bloom,

Into accidental activists who,

Voice and vision intact:


Accept their right to be,


Allow their right to feel,


Shine their light.


Hearts and minds expansive,

Trusting and receptive,

Often anxious and sometimes sad,

Kids these days are at risk of:


Being their best,


Bearing witness to the best in others,


Living fulfilled.


The luckiest among them,

Rarely deprived of love or understanding,

With every need met,

Kids these days choose to:


Be thankful,


Be generous,


Be love.
