Our Generation (by: Jordan Nichols)

I just saw this poem while I was randomly searching online, it was a work of art so I am very compelled to share it. I do not take ownership of this work, I was just really amazed. Shoutout to Jordan Nichols, great job!

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 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

People thought we couldn’t come back

That might be true,

Unless we turn things around

(Read from bottom to top now)”
