Our Generation – A Poem Written by a 14 Year Old Boy

I found this poem published on the Elite Daily website that was pretty amazing.

Not only that it was written by a 14 year old boy, but that it was inspirational and empowering for our generation of thought leaders.

People have so many different passions in life. It starts with building awareness of ideas that are starting in the think tank and encouraging these ideas and help them grow.

We will inherently want to plan and create a future better for ourselves if we keep putting positive messages out there. 🙂

Our Generation –  Written 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.
We knew that
People thought we couldn’t come back
That might be true,
Unless we turn things around
(Read from bottom to top now)


Oh, what a plot twist! Here’s what it reads when it’s reversed from the bottom to the top:

Unless we turn things around
That might be true,
People thought we couldn’t come back
We knew that
Was a joke.
Working hard
Was how we handled our problems.
Giving up
Is something we never did.
Changing our world for the better
Will not be easy, but we will try.
Forgetting about that time,
Is a dumb thing to do.
Being loving, respectful, and kind
Is the way to go.
Living only for money and power
Is a waste. And we know
We actually succeeded
Thinking that
Our generation was a failure.
That is wrong, the truth is
We were the peak of mankind.
Never will anybody say,
Our generation will be known for nothing.
