The young often see more
In something than the old
Are willing to admit to themselves
Or to anyone else their own age.
They don’t want them to possibly
Know more than they do
Because of their young age.
They don’t like the thought that
Someone they would consider young
Could possibly know anything about
Life despite everything they’re
Forced to see with their lives.
All that they see are things adults
Would pass off as part of growing
Up instead of seeing them as the serious
Issue they can be and are
To so many young people, how
They could possibly cause the
Ending of a young life.
