Yesterday's Children

So many stories and never ending tales,
of a time long gone,
few decades back.

The time when they
spoke with their eyes
and wrote with their hearts.
The time when
the elders were feared
and the youth were muted.
The time when
there were towns,
but cities just a few.

We have heard the tales
of hard-work and hardship,
of simplicity and peace.

We have heard the tales
of the trouble they went through
to be who they are
and the work they did
to reach where they are.
We hear them loud and clear
no guilt,  just understand.

We learn from these tales-
the tales of Yesterday's Children.
