So Tell Me

So Tell Me

So tell me little boy?

Do you think life is a perpetual decoy?

Will the future be built out of a kit?

Or do you think it will be based on our own merit?


So tell me young teen?

Is it bright or grim when you are fourteen?

What will you plant and make it grow?

When you drop your mask after Halloween?


So tell me young man ?

Will the world drink from the same can?

Or the thirst for ambition

Will outclass the spirit of the nation?


So tell me old lady

What will you write in your book daily?

A breeze that is fresh and free?

Or an air conditioned typed written diary?


So tell me mummy what do you see in me?

A human spirit agile & free

Tell me mummy what do they see?

A foreign baby who travelled on the sea?


So tell me who do YOU want to be?

A global citizen open and witty who loves his enemy

Park your pity, it is well beyond our range

As I do too feel the winds of change

No need for us to ask, Pascal, what these winds of change may bring? If we would only look to our past and learn from it. A deep and thought provoking post.

I pity the old, and yet I respect the old. But when I am old, will it be wise to envy the young? My time would be done. Dean Owen (circa 1979)

Well done, Pascal. Seems we may have a blending of thoughts. I published this poem on my site 1/18/2017 Exoneration of hapless souls Redefined obtainable goals A smidgen of musing in the mix A fractured world can be fixed Balanced hope must not be nixed

thank you so much Laurent Boscherini turbulent times ahead indeed I believe, albeit the need to get a solid compass to go thru it :-)

Thank you Pascal Derrien for sharing your beautiful writing so poetic as sensitive against rough times to reset the compass with perspectives.
