The Children of Today

We throw our innocence against the
Cold wall.
They used to stand in our
Place.
But we are not the same.
They underestimate us although they are the ones to
Blame.
For we are the tame ones,
Unlike them we can claim
Peace.
We drink their drinks and walk in their shoes.
Pretend to be like them.
Only to be thrown back down once more.
Our numbers are many but our strength is
Weak.
As one we can fight but alone we
Fail.
We bleed their blood but even so we are cast aside.
As if we are merely simple objects bought to match the
Background.
You ask who are we?
Or who are they?
We are the children of today.
They are the
Children
Who call themselves…
Adults.

This poem has a lot of thought put into it. It also seems to have multiple true meanings. Great Job!
