Change

A Poem by z.chéri
"

Be the change in the world.

"
I was told as a child
that i need to be the
change in a world that
is soul-destroying.

Pressure now upon my
five year old shoulders
to make a corrupted 
world secure again.

How was i meant to
enforce love into a 
world that has ever 
only taught me hate?

We cannot expect the younger generation to just be the change in the world. We need to be it as well. Change will start with you, no matter the age you are. - Melody x

An excellent poem based off reality, that expresses so many emotions, such as anger and love!
I agree, the change always starts with you, me or anyone!
Well done, keep it up!
