Their lives felt only with the presences,

Innocent figures with no destination.

Simply entrapped in a moment,

Passionate, just to be passionate.

Unattainable purity only they possess

Drives them through fleeting moments,

Those of joy, and unbreakable devotion

To family, friends, and life itself.

Clouds loom overhead as shadows linger

And adolescence encases their world.

No longer content with obsolete lives,

A worrisome world, all seems wrong.

As their utopia dissipates, disappointment lingers,

Merciless trials in a transition through life.

Tests of time mold them into the future of our world,

Stepping from the shadows to embrace reality.
