The ABC's of XYZ

Generations X Y and Z

A time entrusted to knowledge, experiences and love

Between the years that have fallen to fast below and above

Causes and faults from one to the next

Distinguish Gen Z from the Y'ers and X

Even though they stand with such fierceness strength

Frantic and driven and so full of angst

Gone is the compassion and guidance from Y

Hurried and oppressed from life and its cries

Its simple to say that X has seen it all

Joking and swearing when they tend to fall

Kept in their secrets a soft nod to Y

Longing for answers that wave gently goodbye

Mooring in high tides Y'ers stand firm

Not knowing how tender with each term

Opposing forces that each will seek to find

Purpose in words that feelings hid behind

Quick to judge and seek out the truth

Reasons and queries but none to soothe

Stomping and yelling we all finally learn

To stop and listen and see where we turn

Unveiled in clarity its quite easy to see

Varnished and polished you each were me

With closer inspection from one day to the next

You have grown and learned to flex

Z is you and Y is X and you and I are that's left
