Labeled as the generation with limited potential
We are blessed to be technology savvy, so I am told
And weighted down with this ambivalent credential
Deceives us for we are only gilded gold
We have lost touch with our values, and morals and what was important
How was our compassion for others lost in translation?
Our intrinsic nature has become our only reinforcement
Will our shortcomings end in an inevitable damnation?
These unknowns could stray us into the dark.
The feelings of being
Ridiculed by the ones before us;
We know it is time to restart.
Help us redefine our ideals and contributions to society
Rather than judging us by our actions, try to see our intentions
We didn’t seek to create this hatred-filled, selfish, technology dependent identity
We plead for reconciliation and redemption.
Remember what it was like growing up and trying to find your place?
Try not to forget we are the generation that you raised.
We have lost our character, and only exist as detachments of ourselves
Our minds are trapped, scattered, spinning
On this never ending carousal.
Willing to change the fate we created,
Meet us halfway with an extended hand
We appear selfish, arrogant, and unsophisticated
Please! Please just try to understand.
We aren’t the Baby Boomers
The Hard Timers, Good Warriors or Lucky Few
We are the struggling, upcoming generation
Who are in desperate need of a redo
