The Lost Generation
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 thirty 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
Thirty years from now, I will be celebrating the tenth 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 reverse it.

I don’t want you to be my well constructed paragraph
I rather you be my run on sentence

 

This love isn’t a synopsis
thesis 
or dissertation
it’s a creative writing project that comes together
flawed 
magical 
and full of errors
but we are still learning

 

I don’t need punctuation marks getting in between what we have

 

What we pour into one another should be fluid 
not frozen by societal expectations

 

Let’s avoid periods or colons
comas or ellipses
in OUR love work

 

I’m even OK with us being grammatically incorrect
unconventional 
and in love the way we want to be in love

I will never use my red pen on your heart or tongue to disregard or dismantle how you feel or speak
and I am perfectly OK with your mistakes

 

This love is not a college essay
