The World Today

January 8, 2009
By Jessi Waller, Hurt, VA

The world today is for your enjoyment.
You grow and change and learn from others
Who had to go through the same.
If not for them, where would you be?
It could be the path of destruction.
Follow a road to call your own,
but let them know you care.
If not for those who came before,
your world would not be there.

The author's comments:
You should always respect those who came before you. They helped to build the world you live in and you should thank them for the chance at a future of your own.
