Andrew Charles Forrest

Human soup

Human soup


How will history judge us

Will it say we did our bit

The pampered generation

Was it fitting, were we fit

Is it better for our children

Have we given them enough

Have we made it hard to find themselves

Have we smothered them with love

How will history judge us

Have we really done our best

Has the free world set examples

Or are we just like all the rest

    Hello Andrew,

    Excellent write.

    Life is a constant journey in which we can perfect ourselves.

    Keep writing FineB

    Good write Andrew, all we can do is the best we can for our offspring and send them into the world knowing that what ever happens we will still be there for them.
