The Lost Generation By Jonathan Reed

10 May
The Lost Generation
Written By Jonathan Reed


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 10th 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.

And all of this will come true unless we choose to
REVERSE IT…

Tthe 2nd part of the poem is identical only reversed)

‘Lost Generation’ written by Jonathan Reed is a PALINDROME.

A palindrome is a word or sentence that is the same spelled forward or backward: more info here For example, take a look at the following sentence: “Madam, I’m Adam”

If you omit the punctuation, you can see that the letters spell the same thing forward and backward. Another example is Napoleon’s famous palindrome: “Able was I ere I saw Elba”

There are lots of words that are palindromes including: dad, deified, kayak, mom, repaper, reviver, rotator, and radar.

The amount of energy and effort that one invests into altering their reality takes an equal amount of time and energy (both positive and negative alike)… every decision you make and all the change you intend counts, its all in the CHOICES we (you) make in life.

Peace & Blessings,
