Children of Speculation

There are generations of people
knocking on the door of today/
We cannot stop them
from entering our world/
The people of the future depend on us to be born/
What we think about today determines the kind of people they become/
We are no longer responsible just for ourselves/ 
But for the security of children who have not yet come/

Punctuation could definitely help this piece.

Also, you rhymed 'become' with 'come'
"My mongoose is coming."

I am new at this and not sure how to edit in this format so bear with me.  Above I tried to give examples of how I might try to tighten it up some to try to give it more punch, I guess.  I hope it helps.  Good luck!
