Preface The book was written mainly for young people, including children, teenagers, and young adults. Of course, young adults include younger college students. Although schools and colleges teach knowledge and skills to young people, they often fail to teach students how to live as human beings. Therefore, poetic writings in Poems for Young People provide wise guidance, life teachings, and inspirational messages on the themes of character building, morality, healthy living, self-confidence, self-esteem, identity, meaning in life, positive values, friendship, spirituality, love for family, appreciation for natural beauty, and courage in the face of adversity. In addition, there are poems in this book that address developmental challenges in life such as loss, failure, depression, and rejection. For a young person, this book can be the most valuable gift that one could receive in terms of positively changing that young person’s life or lifestyle and inspiring that young person toward the right path in life.
