WAKE UP AND DREAM
Hey, young one,
Iíve heard whatís going around,
They say youíre wasted space,
Weeds in useless ground.
No wonder youíve lost your hope,
And forgotten how to dream,
Of all you can achieve,
In lifeís ever changing scheme.
Donít listen to Satanís lies,
You wouldnít listen to a fool,
Give him the big wave,
Let his jaw sag, let him drool.
His garbage about your future,
Is designed to make you scream,
Donít surrender your hopes,
Instead, wake up and dream.
Never in history,
Has God given a greater chance,
For a generation to teach,
The world a better dance.
You master technology with ease,
Computers are nothing to you.
Do you want to hear Godís truth,
In Him, thereís nothing you canít do.
So rise above the average,
Shoot out, give it your best shot,
Donít accept mediocrity,
Give it all youíve got.
Feed your ambition with fire,
Work to a plan, a theme,
Get off your butt my friend,
Wake up and dream!
Youíre not only important,
Youíre our only hope,
Without you the futureís dead,
The world will never cope.
Itís your generation,
That God has ordained,
To gain more Holy Ground,
Than anyone has ever gained.
You have the ability,
You have the skills and drive,
You alone can do it,
If you live as if alive.
If you reach for the stars,
It is Satan who will scream,
And you will be the winners.
Wake up! And follow your dream.

I absolutely love this. Even though I'm not of the generation of which you speak, I still felt like somehow you had peeked into my brain and read some of my thoughts. My only critique might be to balance it just a tad more. Maybe change one of the verses to describe the despair that you so eloquently empathized in. Not that the advice and encouragement in the other verses was bad but so super sensitive people won't feel like you are being preachy. I'm having a hard time trying to put it exactly into the right words because it all touched my heart and gave me goosebumps. I just had a vague sense that it was a tad off balance but then I'm not really an expert at poetry. The rhymes were perfect not one seemed force. Though you start in a sad place you infuse the reader with hope as the poem goes on. It is very lovely indeed and will touch many hearts. god Bless and thank you for this message that I need to be reminded of.
