I want it
We get asked to choose a career and 15/16, what fucking 15/16 year old knows exactly what they want to do with their lives? Maybe a few who have excellent grades to match their aspirations. But for people who aren’t as smart, have their dreams crushed and essentially just give up when confronted by demoralising teachers who only care about the people with high grades. Or people who work hard in their education then get absolutely fucked over by the teacher who’s skills never match up to the standard that is needed to help them and therefore mess up their future totally.
So now what? You’re stuck. Grades not high enough, dreams crushed and future not how you’d previously planned or wanted it to be.
Wonder why teenagers can be so depressed, now?
I’m a part of Lost Generation
and I refuse to believe that
I can change 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 thirty years I’ll tell my children
They are not the most important thing in my life
My employer will know that
I have my priority straight because
Is more important than
I tell you this
Once upon a time
Families stay together
But this will not be true in my era
This is a quick fix society
Experts tell me
Thirty 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 this earth
It will be evident that
My generation is apathetic and lethargic
It is foolish to presume that
There is hope
And all of this will come true unless we reverse it.
that is so fucking cool.
