"Lost Generation"

I am part of a 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 30 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
work
Is more important than
family
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 tenth 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.

(READING IT BACKWARDS)

There is hope.
It is foolish to presume that
My generation is apathetic and lethargic
It will be evident that
My peers and I care about this earth
No longer can it be said that
Environmental destruction will be the norm

In the future
I will live in a country of my own making
I do not concede that
30 years from now I will be celebrating the tenth anniversary of my divorce

Experts tell me
this is a quick fix society
but this will not be true in my era
families stayed together
Once upon a time

I tell you this
family
Is more important than
I have my priorities straight because
my employer will know that
they are not the most important thing in my life

So in 30 years I will tell my children
"Money will make me happy"
is a lie, and
"Happiness comes from within"
I realize this may be a shock but

But I can change the world and refuse to believe that I am part of a "Lost Generation"
