GENERATION X? [POEM]
The other day I was going through some boxes at the house, and I came across a few of my old poetry/ rhyme books from when I was a kid. There was this one that kind of stuck out so I figured why not share it.
Generation X ?
They labeled us killers & drug dealers
Before they even had a chance to really come and feel us
Said all we did was have sex and get high
That’s not the truth (Walk with me) come take a look at life through my eyes
The struggles we go through how as a youth we had to fight to survive
And in these streets I’ve seen to many friends die
I know that violence is not they key
But we are young still searching for a remedy
Guns where I live is more popular than the Kennedys
So stop Calling us Generation x, and realize in Gods eyes we are all equal
My father made bad choices but I REFUSE to be the sequel
Some times I feel like with all life stresses
And me having to learn painful lessons
I miss out on a lot of God’s blessings
Still I strive to do the right thing
But it’s hard when yall hex us
With GENERATION X plus
You don’t believe we can achieve
Some Motivation from our older Generation is what we need
DO YOU BELIEVE??
