Our next generation suffer


Notice of absence from Jooles
I disappear for months on end......just my life but I always come back!

They run around so careless, so free
Not quite knowing what their life shall be
There's life in their eyes and a smile on their face
No time for worries, no hate in their heart, there's no space

Untouched and unscathed, their perfectly damage free
Not so is the case for the likes of you and me
Life hasn't touched them and left a foul mark
Not scared of their shadows and what lurks in the dark

The sun's not in the sky but the smile on their face
As they run and they laugh, take life at their own little pace
Their love it is endless and it pours from their soul
It's there for the taking with no hidden goal

The world it is big,shiny and new with lots to explore and lots to do
Their innocence shows in the light in their eyes
Why when we grow does this light fade and die
Life is a struggle a frustrated sigh to which it seems we have a temporary tie

To protect such a thing as an innocent soul is a precious thing, an honour, a goal
Innocence is lost in the blink of an eye and again all hope for the Universe dies
Kids are the future and are born with such love there acceptance is natural, like a hand fits a glove

Its a challenge were failing, to protect all to come
The kids don't stay innocent, that deal we have done
Grow up and grow fast and behave like an adult
To not act with innocence is almost a cult

No manners, no boundaries and innocence lost
We've done it ourselves and what a price, what a cost
The sun it is lost from our children's eyes, the acceptance of all is in times gone by
The potential we have to make this world a great place is lost when we take our next generations good grace
