You tell me not to worry.

You tell me it will be fine. 

But my future is in ruins

Because you didn’t care.

You tell me not to worry, 

But your future isn’t the one

You’re tearing apart. 

It’s mine.

This is how I feel when adults tell me not to worry about climate change or the economy. I just thought I'd put it into words so you could see how it feels.
