Lost Generation (?)

Lost generation

I am part of a lost generation
I refuse to believe that
I can change the world and
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 will tell my children
They are not the most important thing in my life.
My employer will know that
I have my priorities straight because
Is more important than
I tell you this:
Once upon a time
Families stayed together
But this will not be true in my era
This is a quick fix society.
Experts tell me
30 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 it will 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 unles
s we choose to reverse it.
