Think

When we were young and oblivious to the world

Our parents nurtured us

With age we came to develop into a self

That has been weathered and battered by life

As we grew to adolescence our thoughts and actions grow murky 

When your friends want you to smoke weed just once

Think

When you have the choice to be with the boys or do your homework

Think

When you are at a party and you open your legs to some stranger

Think

When you grab the kitchen knife and start to cut yourself 

Think

When you feel overwhelmed and want to give up

Think

Life is to precious to be wasted 

So think of tomorrow

This poem is about: 
Our world
