#PoetryLovers: Our Generation

Why?

Why do the boys of today pursue the body instead of the mind,

High standards yet low earners,

Boy where’s your right?

And women losing themselves,

Trying to prove themselves to the people that made them lose themselves,

Layers of make-up slowly erasing themselves,

Feel, do you remember what that is?

Genuine emotion, real satisfaction,

Why aren’t we making self development the main development?

Making ourselves relevant instead of deviant,

These white collars aren’t right about us,

Do fuck all by us but the first to judge us,

A man’s ambition is the best recognition that credit is deserved,

A woman’s strength to rise above suppression, practice expression and make an impression,

They say money makes the world go around,

Does it whisper a sweet sound?

Let you know you’re alright, hold on, stand your ground,

And when your alone, money doesn’t change that,

The fact that you lay there at night with only demons in sight,

Yet the new day is bright, shine on,

Happiness is on the horizon, it won’t be long.
