We have many pop stars who sing about children being the future, but do we truly consider why? London poet Elle Smith in the original poem 'This is Why Children are Important' offers some inspired ideas in verse:
This is Why Children are Important
They show you in time lapse before the toll of life.
They teach you to see things with fresh eyes.
They show you growth of your investment.
They show you the beauty of innocence.
They give you love unconditionally.
They give a purpose for work.
They say it as they see it.
They tell no lies.
They are you.
you nurture them,
you protect them,
you love them,
they birth a better future for us ALL.
