14 Year Old May Have Written The Most Significant Poem This Decade

14 Year Old Wrote The Most Significant Poem This Decade

Here’s what the poem said: 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 was a failure.

Thinking that

We actually succeeded

Is a waste.And we know

Living only 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

Was 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

The future of our society lies in its youth and the fact that such words can come out of a 14-year-old’s mouth shows that today’s youth can be brave and ambitious with big dreams for the world. After all, only the ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

Note: Jordan’s poem appears to be inspired by Jonathan Reed’s “The Lost Generation”.
