This Lost Generation of Mine

by Autumn Velez 4 years ago in social commentary

This lost generation of mine is really a work of "art."

This lost generation of mine

Is a lost one indeed

We all speak of the future

But few of us follow the steps to succeed

This lost generation of mine

Takes pride in what they wear

Takes pride in what they own

And refuses to share

To share their items with the ones they call close

To share with the people whom they deem “friend”

This selfish generation of mine

Will most likely be the beginning of the end

The end to relationships

The end to unity

The end to fighting for what’s right

And forging the opportunity

We forsake our education

We put down those who are smart

This lost generation of mine

Is really a work of “art”
