Having just lost yet another young girl (18) from our community by her own hand and my niece (16) is dealing with the suicide death of a close friend of hers, also 16. I began to wonder - why do these babes feel life is so hard at their tender age that they must end it. Its a sad commentary and I have been seeing it happen more and more these days. This up and coming Generation Y has a much different outlook than generations prior to them. This is sad, because as we all know that with lifes ups and downs some of our easiest times were as youngsters that life just gets harder. I am not saying that all are like this just how I am seeing things happen. Just to add, the Generation Y really fits this age group - why do I have to? why can't I do? and so on... :-)


 

These babes today
They’ve got it made
Don’t worry dear heart
Mom and Dad will do their part
 
Their worries are few
No bills coming due
Go to a school and learn
Not to a job and earn
 
But when strife comes along
They play the same song
Run straight for a pill, gun or knife
To end this horrible life
 
What ever can de done
No discipline, rules just shunned
Don’t dare raise a voice
Can’t forget – it’s their choice
 
Monsters we create
Generation Y has its fate
Too much money, too little work
Ma and Pa, thems the perks
 
Good grief, what’s next
To get an answer I’ll just text
Dear child, is it ok
If ma and pa see you today?

Too many children today indulged upon by parents thinking they are doing good for their children when in reality they are only postponing the inevitable and it is the children who are ill prepared. I have seen this more times than I care to count, so many young lives unable to face the realities of life....

Be always safe,
Karen

Your poem spoke clearly an area of that no one wants to talk about. You said it well and your words should very well give parents pause when reading them. Thanks, Deborah

I agree with you Sanja, I think since the end of the World War II parents have tried to make things easier for their children not always realizing that easier is not better. We are all guilty of doing our parts...if our children wanted new bikes because they didn't like the colour we would buy them, if they didn't want to go out because they wanted to stay in and play video games we made their snacks, if they didn't want to get a part time job for spending money no problem open the wallet and pass them the mortgage money..etc etc etc///and now society is having to pay the price. Is it reversible...I don't know but your write as Ted said brought up a lot of room for thought. Well done Sanja...

Do correct this: "Whatever can de done"

We have a generation of kids now who have MySpace and FaceBook where they interact with others around the world instead of playing with the kids next door. It is a bigger world and we must grow to interact with it, and we must grow to interact with the needs of our kids. This expansion is not going to go away. We will learn to cope. (?)

Kids today are confronting a world which is too big to grasp and sometimes they are overwhelmed. They get lost in it. They feel small in it. Young egos do not cope well with largeness. Several years ago, two young girls threw themselves in front of a train after leaving a message that they were opting for reincarnation.

Is this scary, or is it simply evolution? Mammoths are gone because they could not cope. I do hope that we will do better.

Sanja, this is a brilliant write! You will cause some authors to think. Always a good thing!
