A new poem: Creating Our Tomorrow

by Sandra

 

Creating Our Tomorrow

A man without a dream
is a man about to succumb.
A man without friends
is a man filled with loneliness.
A man without love
is a man who's incomplete.

A man may try to cover up
his despair,
his dissatisfactions,
his inadequacies,
with drugs of many names,
from alcohol,
to prescriptions,
to street drugs.

This is not the road to success,
or to companionship,
or to happiness.
No, it's the road to ruin,
to many regrets,
to more hardship.

Help our youth to set goals,
cultivate friendships,
and know what love is.
For they create our future,
and we help shape it,
by taking responsibility,
teaching values,
sharing our experiences.
