Talking About My Generation

wpid-img_20141211_160700.jpg

I saw the best minds of my generation*
Depressed.

Not sleeping
Feel that there is something missing
Get drunk in good company
Discussing politics
Travelling
Caring in some way
Searching it
Buying it
Online
Making money
Talking about it
Growing their own vegetables
Not knowing about their dreams
Having sex
Talking about it
Having back pain
Talking about it
Running
Marathon
Waiting to be the chosen ones
Vintage
Being boring
Celebrating hymns
Talking about it
Taking no more drugs
Frighten
Network
Analyze
Choosing this cheese
Being special
Ugly
Making the difference
Witnessing war
On the internet
Flying to the stars
Loving Mom and Dad
Envy
Not being rebels without a cause
Being thankful for a job
Failing in love
Taking pictures
Talking about it
Again

Why don’t you all fade away?**
