Im a part of a Lost generation
and i refuse to believe
that i can save the world
I realize this may be a shock but
"happiness comes from within"
is a lie and
"money will make me happy"
so in 30 years i will tell my children
they are not the most important thing in my life
my employer will know that
I have priorities straight because
is more important than
i tell you this,
Once upon a time
families stayed together
but this is not true in my era
This is a quick fix society.
Experts tell me
30 years from now i will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of my divorce
i do not concede that
i will live in a country of my own making
in the future,
environmental destruction will be the norm
no longer can it be said
that my peers and i care about the earth
it will be evident that
my generation is apathetic and lethargic
it is foolish to presume that
there is hope.
AND IT WILL HAPPEN IF WE DIDN'T REVERSE IT.
