In mess for a reason

Let’s not make a big deal
When they tell us how they feel;
They are not here to please us,
Let’s not make them nervous.

They are as clueless as we were,
Please understand, ma’am and sir;
Allow them to be silly,
Please don’t be a bully.

Gently make them aware,
You care and you’re going to be there;
In word and in action,
Let them know you’re open.

They’re under-construction;
In a mess for a reason.
Let them learn and grow,
Doesn’t matter how slow.

Let them explore,
And experience a little more;
Let them fail and fall too,
They can’t always win for you.
