Shaking Hands

The front runners of tomorrow,

the youth of today is neglecting one aspect in life.

Most mental breakdowns that happen these days

surround the youths we see laughing in strife.

They conceal it so well in the filters that are available on social media.

What does the situation tell you, when even the person cannot see their own sight?

Intense competition and a pool for comparison

which can baffle even the soundest of minds,

why do you think most of them follow their passion

after running the necessary race which was supposed to help them find

their strength and character instead of simple plain depression.

Something is not right and yet we choose to be blind.

A mere task of talking, or even simply sleeping requires help from the outside.

Take help, it is better than becoming the general youth of today who prefers to hide.

Solution is available at every corner of the street but

that is the point which we fail to understand.

The youth knows the way forward,

all they want is freedom from the game of pretend

and some support, love, kind words along the way.

Despite knowing more than the previous generations, the front runners of tomorrow can barely understand.
