Where shall the young go?

Where shall the young go?
The old are not willing
To make way.
The young have no jobs;
The old are not willing
To make way.
The young aren’t in leadership;
The old are not willing
To make way.
Rhetoric we hear;
That the youth are the leaders
Of tomorrow;
Yet that tomorrow never comes;
The old are not willing
To make way.

  1. A great poem. I am convinced the time will come when the old will make way whether they like it or not. My question is rather often whether the young will be ready when the old finally make way. I like the solidarity challenge, that’s why I am here.
