The heart of a 17 yr old boy

Who knows the heart of a 17 yr old boy?

A boy that is not your son. your brother. a family member.

Who knows his fears. His desires. His dreams. His distractions?

Who sees the soul of a 17 yr old boy who wants to be seen.

Who asks the 17 yr old boy what he wants to be…

Who makes a world for a 17yr old boy who wants to change the world?

    “Who sees the soul of a 17yr old boy who wants to be seen.” It’s a powerfilled thought that I’m not sure we explore enough…especially for 17yr old boys that are not our direct family but exist as a member of the human family? What happens when we don’t ask enough questions? When we don’t see what he wants and needs us to see – that he is human. That he needs love. That he needs compassion.
