Our Generation

A 14-year old allegedly wrote this poem. As with all things on the Internet, its authenticity is in doubt, but its message is powerful.

Our generation will be known for nothing.
Never will anybody say,
We were the peak of mankind.
That is wrong, the truth is
Our generation was a failure.
Thinking that
We actually succeeded
Is a waste. And we know
Living only for money and power
Is the way to go.
Being loving, respectful, and kind
Is a dumb thing to do.
Forgetting about that time,
Will not be easy, but we will try.
Changing our world for the better
Is something we never did.
Giving up
Was how we handled our problems.
Working hard
Was a joke.
We knew that
People thought we couldn’t come back
That might be true,
Unless we turn things around


Now, read this from the bottom to the top.

  1. FOX News would call the “peace” generation of the 60’s the root of all evil.

    Check the “facts”, things have gotten worse, therefore, it was their fault.

    FOX Logic.
