What you think you want when you’re younger,
more often than not,
is someone else’s dream for you,
and for themselves,
but not necessarily
your own.

We are taught to search outside,
rather than go within.

To meet other’s people’s expectations.

What if we taught
the younger generations
how to follow their own heart?

Yet from experience I know,
young hearts
often lead themselves
to destruction.

Perhaps there is a balance
a shepherding and guiding
along their way?
