Upper Hand

Youth has always had the upper hand
Not from experience but in perception
Youth has always had the ability to ignore complications
And focus on solutions
To make what's right sound right
Despite the inability to understand
There are too many people who will refuse with opposing views
No matter what's right, they'll fight
Despite the greater good
The bigger picture is a just a picture of themselves
And the only way to make the older generations understand
Is not just to take a stand and expect results today
But to continue the journey throughout the years
Because youth has always had the upper hand
Not in experience but in reinforcements
Anyone afraid of what the younger generations have to say
Will soon be outnumbered one day
