Listen to the Kids – A Poem


The Dopamine Queen

It’s not the first heartbreak
It’s the first knee scrape

Not graduation day,
But kindergarten picture day

We’re failing the children, the babies, the kids
And they’re growing up into lost misguided shits

That’s right, I’m talking about you and me
We are a wreck, assholes, or both almost guaranteed

I don’t know anyone who isn’t either dealing with their mental health chronically
Or wearing a maga hat unironicaly

But we can change this, it can be fixed
It’s not even that hard, the problem is this

For too long we have taught children to be quiet
Hoping for most of them to listen and be compliant

I’m here to tell you we have it wrong
The answer has been children all along

It’s time for them to speak up and us to listen
Every parent, teacher, doctor and politician

Sit your ass down the kids need to speak

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
