My Generation

"It's okay my parents know a lawyer" drunk teens say as they turn up the music

That's my generation

Half asleep in class because he has to take 3 APs to get into his parents Alma mater, even though they'll just buy him in

That's my generation

Worries of the future are taken over by worries of how to survive if there's a shooting in class

That's my generation

I'm taking a gap year, not to travel but to make sure I can pay for college

That's my generation

We're angered that you left us this

That's my generation

We found ourselves and we're out and proud

That's my generation

We've made apps, and laws, and scientific discoveries

That's my generation

Are we still "slacking off"?

Take a nice long look at your future

Because that's my generation
