Don’t teach our children that
they can do anything, everything
stop teaching them about success

Teach them how to take
care of themselves
in the midst of this uncertain 
change and turmoil

Teach them how to grieve
for the world that should
have been theirs
Before the climate changed
before life became even more

Teach them to be grateful
for each good thing
And to know how to distil
what still remains true 
and to stay faithful

And most of all
teach them about failure
the acceptance of a battle lost
and the ability to keep going
in the face of sure defeat 

Teach them how to hold on 
to what is dear 
and to hold on
for dear life
