Our Generation

By  Jordan Nichols

Our generation will be known for nothing
Never will anybody say,
We were the peak of mankind.
That is wrong,
The truth is
Our generation is a failure
Thinking that
We actually succeeded
Is a waste. And we know
Living for money and power
Is the way to go.
Being loving, respectful, and kind
Is a dumb thing to do.
Forgetting about that time
Will not be easy, but we will try.
Changing our world for the better
Is something we never did.
Giving up
Is how we handled our problems.
Working hard
Was a joke.
We knew that
People thought we couldn't come back.
That might be true
Unless we turn things around.
