Poem about Teen Life

Stream Of Consciousness

This poem just came to me one night as I was about to post a Facebook status on this generation, but before I knew it, line after line flowed onto the screen, and I created a literary work.

This Generation

Published: November 2015

This generation would rather be encircled by people who encourage them to fight their brethren,
than encourage them to unite as one body.

This generation spends more time on social media acquiring "followers,"
than taking time to build long lasting relationships.

This generation is so used to using emojis,
rather than displaying raw emotion.

This generation would rather be surrounded by "friends" who tear them down
than people who build them up.

This generation thinks happiness equals the amount of money in the bank,
rather than living a content, meaningful life.

This generation would rather mock others who put effort into their education
than learn from them.

This generation is so quick to place blame on someone else for their actions
rather than accepting responsibility.

This generation lives under the saying "YOLO"
to compensate for the stupid things they do.

This generation forgets that we were created "one nation under God,"
so they push God to the back burners.

This generation is so ignorant,
and I am afraid that it will not change, but only get worse.

This generation is dying out.

I agree completely with this. I was born into this generation and I hate to see the things that have changed it. I really like this poem because it shows the things that have changed this generation and made it take a turn for the worst.
